Fact of the Day: Arabian Bicycles

Women in Saudi Arabian can't drive a car by law, and the same goes for all methods of transportation. The only exception is bicycles, however they must be with a male relative nearby and they can only ride the bicycle for fun.

  7. You should see this movie...

    Wadjda - An enterprising Saudi girl signs on for her school's Koran recitation competition as a way to raise the remaining funds she needs in order to buy the green
    bicycle that has captured her interest.

    It's on Netflix.
