Future Urban Cyclist

Dreams of a boy who wants to pedal around town.

Of these days, my seven-year-old son told me: “dad, I thought if there were no car? Then I’d be able to ride a bike on the street, right? We’d be able to go everywhere a bicycle.”

Until I thrilled. I told him that when he is greater, we will be able to do that. It’s been a few years since it asks me this.

Here in Sao Paulo still can’t put a 7-year-old in the middle of traffic. The most I’ve ever done with him on the street was out from inside the Ibirapuera Park and go to a restaurant more or less close, but all the sidewalk. We stopped all three of us (me, him and my wife) on the bike rack of the place and we had lunch. Then we’re back pedaling up the Park. For him, it was the greatest adventure…

But I have faith that the city will be friendlier to him than me. Thanks to the personnel participating in the Bike, Eunhae and some, the former cicloativistas to some (rare) councilors, former councilors and Secretaries, some people on the subway and CPTM, the monthly Bicicletadas, some websites and blogs mentioned here constantly, the world car free day, the guerrilla actions of cicloativistas in the city, a few journalists with an open mind and , oddly enough, thanks to pollution and congestion, pushing people of common sense to seek out alternatives.

To everyone (except the pollution and congestion, of course), my many thanks. To continue working in this direction. Maybe our children will not be able to take their kids to school in trailers of those stylish?

 

Candidate During last year’s elections, he came up with this:

-Dad, if I were a candidate you voted me?

-depends on, son. What would you do?

-I was going to get all the cars and all the bikes in the street and would leave only bicycles!

-has already won …

Before me, I always explain stone to him that the car is important primarily as ambulance, fire truck and police car. Or for those who have difficulty in locomotion, for long distances that are not served by public transport and to transport children, elderly, sick, weight and volume. And that buses and trucks also have your importance.

I’m not in favor of burning cars, but most of them could get off the streets and give way to buses (preferably electric), subway, railroads, bike, hiking. We’re going to better target future generations to grow with the same vision that carrocentrista was stuck down the throats of our.
