Although the Government continue without performing surveys and statistics on the growth of cycling, the number of cyclists on the streets of Sao Paulo has increased. More and more people opt for the bike to escape the unacceptable congestion, resulting from a management model that always prioritized the use of the automobile.
This growth, impossible to ignore, raises ever more questions about the use of the bicycle in urban space, one of the steps toward more sustainable cities.
While Sao Paulo walks to congestion getting worse, the bike follows in opposite way, solving individual problems and acting as a factor of reduction of congestion, pollution, accidents and contributing to a more humane, sustainable city, happy and healthy with a better utilization of public space and a larger (and positive) interaction between the people on the streets.
