Cycling in Pakistan

LAHORE/KARACHI: Girls in Lahore and Karachi took to the streets on Sunday for a bike rally—they came out in dozens and rode enthusiastically throughout the route, without the company of men.

They carried witty posters saying things like, "Cycle Chalao, Aurton ko Haq Dilao/Patriarchy Dubao" and "I can cycle... can you keep up?"

The rally was organised by Girls at Dhabas and Critical Mass Lahore in protest of the harassment women experience when they venture out in their cities alone. Last week, a Critical Mass Lahore member Aneeqa Ali was riding her cycle to join the rest of the group, when a car of boys intercepted her and hit her bike from behind. Aneeqa took to social media and spoke publicly after the incident, inspiring others to organise a larger scale event for all women, many of whom have experienced similar harassment on their city's roads.

In 1995 Göran Kropp bicycled from Stockholm, Sweden to Nepal. He rode 11406,6km on a Crescent Ultima bicycle with a packtrack. His gear weighed 129kg.


Here he's on his way through Pakistan.
