A very powerful and perceptive article. Especially the story of Georgina is very touching and points out the essential role that bicycle can play in people's lives. I had never thought of how the rapid development of technology leads people to prefer the fast means of transportation, but not the qualitative ones. People, particularly individuals who live in more industrialized societies, cannot understand the benefits of the bicycle. Riding a bike means no pollution, less traffic and a more healthy lifestyle. Bicycle can likely be a point for social change because this will show that humanity still have the ability to think critically... Definitely World Bicycle Day should be sanctioned by the United Nations.
