“25 year old Latino who now calls Germany home”

Why do you ride?

Because I only found the great joy of riding a bike at the ripe age of 25 (yes I told you the story), so I have lots of time to make up for! But also because I believe it is simply healthy for myself and for the environment and you get to enjoy your surroundings much more and appreciate them better (the beauty of it) when you are on a bike.

Best thing about cycling?

That you can drink at parties as you don’t need to drive back home! 😀 (and half of my answer above)

What improvements would you like to see for cyclists?

Actually, Dusseldorf is a pretty advanced city in terms of prioritizing cyclist lanes in every single road and making every building and location easily accessible by bike. The public transportation also allows you to ride trains, trams and buses with your bike if you need to and these have even allocated spaces within wagons to place the bicycles in.

Fondest cycling memory?

When my husband gave me my very first bike at the age of 25 and then taught me how to ride it. 🙂

Cycling tip?

As I am still an amateur, I would love to receive some instead.

Though one… with me you get what you see…
