Dangers & annoyances

If you’re on a bike, motorised or otherwise, watch out for unpredictable traffic, uneven roads and bag-snatchers. Daypacks in unprotected front baskets are easy to grab at traffic stop lights.

Also, be wary of the local dog packs. They won’t take notice of you unless you cross into their territory, which will trigger a shrill chorus of barking, exposed fangs and even biting. One dog-avoidance trick is to not catch their eye.
