“There are nine million bicycles in Beijing
That’s a fact
It’s a thing we can’t deny
Like the fact that I will love you till I die.”

As CBS News reports, there are actually more than 9 million bicycles in Beijing and they are really a sight to see: “It’s one of the most beautiful sights in China’s capital: flocks of bicycle riders all moving in tandem through the city’s wide boulevards. Metropolitan Beijing is packed with almost 12 million people and 13 million bicycles, making the simple two-wheeler hard to miss.”
