the video should start at 11min and 25seconds where the clip start!

We covered many aspects including:
  • Benefits of cycling
  • How deal with Heat?
  • traffic Congestion
  • Culture problems
  • Bike Lanes? Bicycle Driving?
  • Safety
  • Islamic Sharea Laws VS Saudi :Traffic Laws
  • Dealing with accidents and how to claim your right on the road!
  • How those people learned about cycling and commuting by bike safety
  • Some types of Bikes

This is a written report in Arabic, if you like google translate
