The Observatory of the Bicycle has invited Mario Gaviria (Spanish Parliament - Navarre - 1938) to come to San Sebastian to give a conference on the emergent phenomenon of the use and presence of bicycles in the streets of the city. In words of Mario Gaviria, the bike provides health, happiness, happiness, does not contaminate, does not occupy space, it is cheap, sustainable, silent, it humanizes, appeases, calms the traffic and the urban space. It is versatile........ The human being, in bicycle, overcomes in thermodynamic mobility all the included animals horses, dolphins and mythological hybrids: to the siren, to the centaur, to Pegasus, to the winged dragon....... The bicycle is not a vehicle but a pedestrian with wheels in the feet.
To reflect on this phenomenon of increasing use of the bicycle, which it is possible to consider to be an ancestral and "postmodern" culture simultaneously, of individual commitment in a sustainable mobility, there has been organized the conference that will take place next Thursday, the 11th of September to las19:30 h in the Lounge of Plenary meeting of the Town hall of San Sebastian.
Mario Gaviria graduated in Right and Sociology, has published numerous articles and books, many of them related to the environment and the sostenibilidad. He is an urban cyclist who has reflected and investigated on the phenomenon of the use of the bicycle in the cities, going so far as to affirm that "it is the option of that we think that it is possible to save and the planet will be saved".
