This is it. My last post about my visit to São Paulo, so if you haven't been inspired yet by these amazing urban cyclists, here's your chance!
We've got Renata Falzoni here pointing out the phrase that runs through the veins of every bike advocate in every city I've ever visited: Go by bike! It's so simple, and yet, we often must fight so hard to do just that.
And here's Felipe Aragonez, Bike Reporter in action! In this picture, he's calling into the radio station to report on traffic conditions from the bike lane. (And coincidentally, the car behind him belongs to another reporter from the TV station reporting from the same corner!)
Oi Renata! Oi Felipe!
Meet Laura, Ana and Carlos! Three SP bike advocates whom I had the pleasure of getting to know at Renata's house. They were busy at work doing a photo shoot for a calendar of famous cyclists posing nude avec bicyclette due out later this year. I can't wait to see it!
Ana gifted me this fantastic necklace that her friend makes. I wore it day and night for the rest of my trip in Brazil.
Oh, and this is all you get to see from the photo shoot. Sorry. These are the feet of a tall, gorgeous blonde volleyball player who also happens to be a bike advocate in São Paulo.
I guess you had to be there.
Or buy the calendar.
Or go to SP and be inspired for yourself.
