Utility Cycling in the Wider World

I discovered the Flying Pigeon Project blog recently, and have been enjoying his phototour of Asia, through the lens of bikes. I thought I'd share a few here:

Part 1 of a 4 part series based in Tibet: http://www.flyingpigeonproject.org/2...ork-bikes.html

Work bikes in Beijing - Garbage men: http://www.flyingpigeonproject.org/2...f-bejiing.html

Work bikes in Beijing - Knife sharpener: http://www.flyingpigeonproject.org/2...ners-bike.html

Work bikes in Beijing - Butcher: http://www.flyingpigeonproject.org/2...hong-kong.html

More here: http://www.flyingpigeonproject.org/utility-bikes/

Very cool to see how it's done elsewhere. I think there's even an article on a baked potato roaster mounted to a bike somewhere in there.

Edited to fix the knife sharpener's bike link.
