Bike Mi in Milano

The pattern of bikes lined up in the courtyard of a church in Milan caught my eye. Their orange and cream metal gleamed under the peeping sun. Bike Mi s an public bicycle transport system where registered users can swipe their card in front of a reader at various locations, ride a bike to their destinations and drop it at the many stations around the city, an ecological alternative to other forms of public transport.

These bicycles were popular all over Milan. During late afternoons, some of these stations were empty as commuters used to them to go home. In contrast to the safety requirements in Australia, not a single person riding them wore a safety helmet.
