Remember when you learned to ride a bicycle? Is surely one of the most endearing memories of your life.
Well, surprisingly, 1 out of 6 women in Catalonia between 12 and 79 years not have this record or have never experienced that feeling because they have never learned to cycle. In the older they are familiar phrases as "If you do not bike staying pregnant" or "this is for men".
This is part of the historical legacy that has lived the culture of cycling our towns, cities and roads of Barcelona, Catalonia.
We, the Bicicleta Club de Catalunya (BACC), one of the biggest local NGO's, work to restore the culture of cycling in Barcelona and Catalonia. One of our most innovative projects is biciescola surprisingly, that is, getting people to learn to ride a bicycle.

The biciescola is located in Barcelona. This is practically the only and largest existing in Catalonia and Spain. People come from everywhere and many adults think that it is never too late to learn to ride a bicycle.
