Pedal Power

IMG_0115 IMG_0112Going around on bicycles is no longer a fashion. Let alone fashion, it’s not even in fashion. In Bahrain, it never was and, going by the looks of it, never will be.
But these pictures taken at the Arab Shipbuilding and Repair Yard Company (ASRY) are very refreshing. Hundreds of bicycles parked everywhere and scores of workers moving around on them, getting from one workshop to another.
Managers say it’s the norm within the factory complex. Besides being a healthy option, it’s also pollution and noise free.
Great idea, certainly. If only the people at large take a cue from the ASRY experience, wouldn’t Bahrain be a better place, environmentally, to live in?
