I don't understand why there are still people doing biking in KL with so many cars around. Don't they realise that accident rate increases when the number of cars increase.

Biking should only be done in mountains or rural areas where it's safe.

Yup, you can find bicycle lane in every corners in these cities. At some of these cities, one can even rent the bicylce by swiping credit card at the road side reader..

The problem is some people don't know what they don't know...... ;-)
