When we were kids, cycling was a normal part of everyday life. We just got on our bikes and started pedaling! These days, we have to dress up as if we are about to participate in a dangerous sport. Recently we rode bikes in Paris, and it seemed to us that Parisians ride bikes just the way we did as kids – they just get on a bike and start pedaling! We would like to see an entire world in which riding a bike is as normal and casual as it was when we were kids. Let’s make cycling normal again!
