The Bicycle


The bicycle, a device that reminds you of the “way” among many destinations today; The joy of experiencing a sense of liberation and independence, along with a little spice of fear of losing your balance. A bike that accompanies you instead of controlling you. A tool that has the power to transform today’s car-oriented cities into more human-centered ones. The prerequisite for keeping your balance is the will to pedal and keep going.
