    Hello all!

    I would like to know if it's too difficult to ride a bicycle in Phnom Penh? Is it maybe too hot, or the traffic is too high?
    I will arrive in this city in two days and I am really enjoying my bicycle in Germany!!
    Someone can advice me a good shop for bicycle also?? Someone advice me flying bike in another forum.
    And I am currently looking for a good second hand Mountain bike in Siem Reap, my friend advice me this website www.kampucheadeal.com, it's a very good website for buy and sell, but I didn't find exactly what I want yet.. Anyone who sell his bicycle or know a good shop or place can contact me here please!

    Cheers

    B.

    Too hot? No.

    Traffic? Insane. If you enjoy riding in anarchy, that place is for you. PP is the anti-Germany.

    It's just a bicycle, lots of people ride them in PP. They stopped shooting at you a while ago.
    Seriously, if you just go with the flow it can be fun and the city is flat.
    Just remember when you turn left you don't wait for a gap in the traffic. You just turn into it and it flows around you.

    Man, it's anarchy... I suppose on the plus side there is no shooting. I don't like bicycles anyway. But if I did, that place would be on my challnege lists of places to ride. Experienced rider like Brian shouldn't have any problem though. Just don't expect the rules of the road, as you understand them, to be followed and remmember your life while mounted doesn't have a lot of meaning to other drivers. Keep that in mind, you should be fine.
