  3. Do you think that only one of these pictures is really showing cycle CHIC? Isn’t it more this average-mainstream-H&M-ugly-standard-flea-market-stuff which you alo find in Bielefeld (a special german joke because this city is not existing due to its normality)?

    I have questions to ask. Is there any road uphiil or just the flat road?
    I looked that the people are happy and colourful while riding bycycles, what is the temperature?

    i am still wondering why the people in Berlin do not geting sweat.
