Hello from Shanghai


My name is Luke Richardson. I'm a 27 year old Canadian, originally from Calgary, Alberta, living in Shanghai, China. I work as a Science and English teacher in the International Division of Shanghai Jin Cai High School, and have done so since September. I am just about to finish my first year there, and I will continue working there in the next school year.

I am a mixed mode commuter. Every day, I ride my Dahon Boardwalk about 3.5km from my house to a subway station, fold it and carry it on the subway for a 20 minute ride, then unfold it at the other end for another 3.5km ride to my school. Every day I ride nearly 15km, and since February I have put nearly 1300km on my bike. I love it - it's a great bike, and I think I'm in the best shape of my life now.

I used to ride bicycles recreationally when I lived in Canada, but I think riding for commuting is even better. I just have to watch out for all those crazy Shanghai drivers!
