“It’s too dangerous to catch up with the car at the speed of cycling.” On Chang’an Street, you can always see the “fast cyclists” riding road bikes crazily and shuttling back and forth, and pedestrians can’t help but sweat for them.
Many of them rode at a speed of more than 30 or 40 kilometers per hour, and there were uncivilized phenomena such as running red lights and occupying motorways.
At about 7:00 p.m.
on August 22, there was a continuous flow of vehicles on Chang’an Street, and pedestrians on the sidewalk also came and went, which was very lively.
Many cyclists shuttle back and forth on the bike lane in groups.
Most of them wear protective gear and professional cycling clothes.
They also ride all kinds of professional road bikes and mountain bikes, which are much faster than ordinary bicycles.
Beijing Daily (ID: Beijing_Daily), a reporter, calculated that among the four groups of cyclists on the nearby bicycle lane, three groups had a speed of about 35 kilometers per hour, and the other group had a speed of more than 40 kilometers per hour, which also exceeded many vehicles, which made the vehicles turning right into Chang’an Street have to slow down to avoid.
When I came to the intersection and met the red light, the cyclists and pedestrians did not care and ran straight through.
A few riders and pedestrians without any protective equipment are speeding through Chang’an Street.
At this time, a man riding on the West Chang’an Street broke into the right turning motorway in front of the intersection and crossed between motor vehicles until he passed the intersection, and then he entered the bicycle lane obliquely.
On Fuxingmen Bridge, more than a dozen road bikes are lying on the ground, and cyclists in professional riding clothes are preparing for riding.
A young female rider said, “Most of the cycling on Chang’an Street is from 7:00 to 9:00 in the evening.
It may rain today, but there are few people.
At ordinary times, there are twenty or thirty people here.
Generally, people ride from Fuxingmen Bridge to Jianguomen Bridge.
If they are fast, the average speed is 30 to 40 kilometers per hour, and the fastest instantaneous speed can reach nearly 60 kilometers.” She said frankly, “It’s dangerous to ride too fast.” On the ranking list of a cycling app, The ranking of the “Chang’an Street” stage is specially set up.
The first ranked user only took 9 minutes and 13 seconds to ride 6.5 kilometers, and the speed reached 43.32 kilometers per hour.
In the ranking, there are 95 people with a speed of more than 30km/h and 523 people with a speed of more than 25km/h.
“You can run all the red lights without stopping in the middle.
Only when you pass the speed can you finish the whole ride in about 9 or 10 minutes, or you can ride in the middle of the night.” A man on the Fuxingmen Bridge who was ready to ride speculated.
Cui, who often drives through Chang’an Street, is very careful when turning north.
“On several occasions, when I turned to the right, I encountered a bike that jumped out of my car at a high speed.
I was really scared.
If there was an accident, the motor vehicle would be responsible for it.” Mr.
Cui said helplessly, “In addition, the maximum speed of an electric bike is only 25 kilometers per hour, which is safer than a bicycle.
I hope that riders can also consciously control the speed.” Near Fuxingmen Bridge, The traffic assistant and assistant police who are maintaining the order of the bicycle lane said: “At present, there is no speed limit for bicycles in the law.
At this stage, we can only stop ourselves consciously.
A young man who was riding very fast was hit by a motor vehicle a few days ago.
The young man’s leg was bruised and his blood flowed.
Later, he was pulled away by 120,” said Wei Xiaodong, a lawyer of Huiyuan Law Firm, At present, there is no speed limit for bicycles in law, but there are two documents for reference.
One is the Beijing Non motor Vehicle Management Regulations, which stipulates that the maximum speed of driving an electric bicycle on the road and in a non motor vehicle lane shall not exceed 15 kilometers per hour.
Second, the Notice on Traffic Management of the Huilongguan Shangdi Bicycle Only Road clearly states that the maximum speed of riding on the bike only road shall not exceed 15 kilometers per hour.
