Indonesians resort to pedal power

Commuters in Jakarta take up cycling to avoid the hassle of negotiating the city's chaotic roads.

    Commuters in Indonesia's capital are resorting to pedal power to beat the city's notorious traffic jams.

    But while cycling to work might seem like a healthy option, taking on the Jakarta's chaotic roads is another matter.

    That is why a small number of people decided to form the "Bike to Work" group to avoid the hassle of chronic traffic jams on the streets.

    Al Jazeeras Syarina Hasibuan reports from the city of 10 million people.
