Returning to school by bicycle

September 12th, 2018

This week a lot of kids are going to start again the school studies and that means a clear return to the routine for a lot of people. But, this time, if you haven’t tried it before, you can add a refreshing change to this routine, it consists in returning to the school by bike.

Barcelona is every time a safer city when we talk about riding a bicycle through its streets, all this thanks to the extension of the bike lane. So, why don’t take advantage of this situation and be an example for the little ones using the cleanest means of transport?

This video that we have used other times (yes, we admit it, we thrill every time we play it) shows how this situation can be absolutely normalized and a main situation, so, why don’t we try it?

For us, this is a mantra, we should work in order to Barcelona become a cleaner city by including the bicycle in our routine, being an example to the future generations.

Then, this new school year, are you going to join our club? That’s free and very healthy!

The bicycle as an educative tool

November 22nd, 2016

Improving the environment of the place where we live by reducing the pollution, the noise and the stress is important. But, for maintaining it, educating the youngsters with good habits is a basic thing.

This post has been inspired by the initiative of the neighborhood of La Sagrera in Barcelona. From the 17th of November, this neighborhood is celebrating its great fiesta. And, among performances and activities, we have wanted to emphasize the children’s bicycle race, which will be celebrated on the same day of the closure, this Sunday, the 27th.

In this race, which will take place in the Pegaso Promenade, the participants will be between 5 and 14 years old. And, so that none of them lose the will to participate, in addition to the common race, the “snails” race, where the winner is going to be the last one, will also be celebrated.

This great initiative will motivate children to enjoy their streets, as well as to introduce themselves into some healthier habits, with which to enjoy the journey and the everyday life a bit more.
