Portugese Bicycle Culture

We're so pleased our friend Humberto in Lisbon sent us these two links to news pieces on Portugese bicycle culture. It's in Portugese, but the images are wonderful. Have a look.

In this first video we meet two men who still practice old professions in the Portugese capital. The first chap delivers bread on his old bicycle and the second chap sharpens knives for people using his bicycle. There's a guy in Copenhagen who does the latter - I've just never been able to get a photograph of him.

The second piece is about a Vintage Bicycle Meet. Splendid shots of cool old bikes and their owners.
