“Bicycles are revolutionary machines: they construct equality. … While cars are a means of social differentiation and exclusion, bicycles integrate people as equals. When two people on bicycles meet, they meet as human beings.”
- Dr. Enrique Peñalosa, former mayor of Bogotá, Colombia in a keynote address at the Recycle-A-Bicycle Youth Summit last weekend.
