The Bike and the – Cycle-Press Debate in Sao Paulo

This Wednesday, July 13, the second cycle-Shimano debate, with the theme “the bike and the press”. The speakers are Rodrigo Burgarelli and Leandro Valverdes.


Burgarelli is a reporter for the newspaper O Estado de Sao Paulo and has written many good stories about bicycles, always hitting on tom. Leandro Valverdes is a journalist and cicloativista, in addition to a great friend, and is always involved in pro-bicicleta initiatives in the city of Sao Paulo, generally doing work behind the scenes that don’t show up.

-this fourth cycle promises to bring light to the relationship of the press with the bike, clarifying how the theme is seen and treated in newsrooms and how this relationship can evolve. I’m not lost.
