4 days ago I went to the Retiro park in Madrid, with my bicycle, which is exactly like this one you see above. Well, mine is blue, but I wanted to use some vibrant colours, so.. maybe, I exaggerated a bit. It’s a folding bike and I try to use it a lot even if around Madrid it could be difficult with all the cars and buses, but I got used and found my way to move smoothly around the busy streets.
I made this cut out watercolour bicycle just before going to the park. I wanted to talk about it, but then I thought..why not take it around were I would actually go by bicycle?!
Now, can you imagine a person taking pictures of a little paper bicycle in a park? It was hilarious. Even the police got curious of what I was doing, as I went behind the Crystal Palace Hall – an art exhibition center – to take some pictures of my little bicycle over the bricks of the wall (- see the picture below!)
Well, this was fun. In this case I used my bicycle to go to the park, but I love using it as a real means of transport around the city and I would like to use it more often even if sometimes it’s difficult – well, the heat right now doesn’t help!
What do you think? Do you usually use a bike?
