Cyclist holding a tempo

A common sight in India is to see cyclists holding on to motor vehicles so that they can speed along with it. The traffic police either cannot see them or turn a blind eye. In any case even if they are caught, they are simply reprimanded. It is not considered dangerous enough. Or I suppose it is dangerous only for the cyclist, no one else. These photographs were taken through the windshield of a car.

Here the cyclist is trying to catch up with the speeding van ahead of him.

Cyclist close behind a tempo

Here he managed to do it! When we overtook we realised it was a middle aged man, oblivious to the risks associated with this mode of travel. The tempo is carrying commercial goods for sale in the marketplace. Vegetables like onions and potatoes.
