EGYPT-WOMEN-CYCLING-LIFESTYLE

TO GO WITH AFP STORY BY HAITHAM EL-TABEI Egyptian Yasmine Mahmoud, a 31-year-old executive secretary, rides her bicycle in Cairo on December 25, 2014. Women enjoy more freedom in Egypt than in deeply conservative Muslim countries such as Saudi Arabia, but the most populous Sunni Arab country still considers it inappropriate for them to ride bicycles. Unlike in many countries, the two-wheeler is considered unsafe for travelling in Cairo's traffic-clogged roads. For Egyptian women it is all the more challenging given the city's notorious sexual violence, and female cyclists in particular are targeted by passers-by.
