Introducing the blog

My name is Marc. I'm a Catalan from Barcelona and I ride a Brompton bicycle every day (more or less) since 2006. That's me:

Brompton and the Marc (II)

I was blogging in Catalan about the bicycle in the city in my personal blog. Now it's time to (try to) blogging in English to reach a broader audience.

In Barcelona, about the bicycle, there is a big problem between reality an the political propaganda from the City Council. I'll try to show my daily experience riding in Barcelona, putting it in context with some other European cities.

My personal references about the urban bicycle are, obviously, Denmark and The Netherlands. I usually read blogs as Copenhaguenize, Amsterdamize, A view from the cycle path and others.
