Cycle-Shimano Discussions On Mobility By Bicycle

In addition to Bike Week events in Sao Paulo, we have during the whole month of July a series of Cycle-debates, with the aim of promoting reflection on topics related to cycling and encourage your use in large cities.

Debates are promoted by Shimano, traditional manufacturer of bicycle parts, and take place in the House of roses, on AV. Paulista, every Tuesday weeks this month. The duration is 1:30, with the presence of two guests with relevant experiences in the subject, as well as a mediator of Shimano.

Debates are open to the public and with free entry. Just attend the dates and scheduled times and in time your application.


The panelists are familiar names in the Middle, with a lot of baggage and practical experience to share:

Willian Cross (by Bike) Soninha Francine (ex-vereadora and ex-subprefeita from the city of Sao Paulo) Aline Chan (Pedalinas, Ciclocidade) Claudia Franco (Ciclofemini) Rodrigo Burgarelli (Washington Post reporter) Leandro Valverdes (journalist and cicloativista) Sergio Affonso (CAB) William Cavallari (Kalapalo)
