    • Tell me about it! I am riding the bike everyday to work, the chances of getting hit by a motorbike/car are very high and there isnt a day I will not say nasty things to drivers in traffic :)) Coming from a rather easy to cycle city like London this is a jungle!

  1. I understand you but the situation is like you’ve already experimented. Traffic in Rome is the first problem of the city and there is no culture neither developing of bike roads. Be very careful on the streets if you are going to use the bike to go to work and avoid rainy days where the traffic is extremely jammed…it’s a jungle as you said. I love bikes and I use it to go to work too but I know the risks

    • Oh, I just had a look on your blog, I’m talking with a pro here. Yeah, really using public transport or the ar in Rome is even worse so I’m stuck with having to be very careful riding the bike :) Thanks for your tips!
