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.

When we started with biciescola even we thought no one would come, but after 10 years, we have tough to ride a bicycle to almost 5,000 people, 85% women, average age about 45, although we have had women of all ages, from 18 to 81 years.

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.

Enter enlaira't Movement and the more you know biciescola and all the emotions generated by learning to go cycling in adulthood.

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO PROPOSE

We now propose to build together a future for biciescola
The project is financed biciescola 30% by the Government. This year, the public contribution fell 6.000 euros and we need those resources to continue to keep the project alive.

Our goal is funding through the patronage of 3,300 euros. The rest of the funding we need, look through the corporate sponsorship and foundations.

WHAT TO MAKE YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS
With this money, we rented bicycles, which includes the storage and maintenance of them, students will use this summer and fall.

That's why we ask your support and commitment to the use and access to cycling for everyone.
