Cycle Chic in Buenos Aires

In May the museo de los ninos (children’s museum) in Buenos Aires launched an exhibition called “Amo la bici” which means nothing less than “I love the bike”. The invitation was illustrated by one of my pictures featuring Joni, her son and my daughter:

There were pictures of cycling children all along the route. They were taken by us in Amsterdam and by Michael Colville and his cycle chic team in Copenhagen: museo ninos-4

For the ones speaking spanish, here are some fun facts about cycling in Amsterdam: museo ninos-9The exhibition was such a big hit that it will be moved to the children’s museum of Rosario in October.
