Cycling

First Steps

  • Before everything, the bike was on my Wedding Cake.
  • I’ve always had a bicycle. I got my first bike when I was 7 years old.
  • I made friends who liked the same hobby.
  • There were some bike rides in Brasília and I always went to these rides. Sometimes alone.
  • Interesting: There was a cemetery to get to school. I crossed as fast as I could to get to school as quickly as possible.

Teenager

  • Take the bus in Goiânia. No way!
  • I used to go to school by bicycle.
  • Not just school, I went everywhere.
  • Since I started dating my wife, we’ve gone out everywhere.
  • Of course, we’ve already fallen off the bicycle. And it wasn’t just once.

Buying a Bicycle

A girl consultant shows the buyer in a bicycle store. A young man came to the store to buy a new bicycle. She helps him to choose.
