The good old bicycle — neither encouraged nor a familiar sight in the heart of the city, certainly not during the evening peak hour — was a lifeline for many. Picture shows riders at Esplanade at 5.30pm on Monday. Cycles are banned on thoroughfares in this part of the city between 7am and 11pm. However, police are not prosecuting bicyclists now to ensure people can reach their destination in the absence of other modes of transport.
