Islamic bicycle designed for women in Iran
According to Iranian Women's News Agency (IWNA) Mehdi Esmaeeli, the Deputy to Governor of Isfahan in Security and Political affairs, discussed plans for design and mass production of a special Islamic bicycle for women. He said: "Riding bicycle for women, if it is done to attract attentions, is against Islamic norms ... But there are health benefits and we cannot only prohibit women from doing things ... So we are designing biking provisions for women, such as specially designed bicycles."
Mr. Esmaeeli did not elaborate on how the new design would mask or block attention to the woman riding the bicycle, but he pointed out to other provisions: "Naturally covered and hidden paths around the Zayandehrood river in Isfahan and closed paths are considered for this purpose."
