Pedalo is a project by Bárbara Magri, with the idea of encouraging cycling as a way of transportation in a country that hosts some of the biggest cities in the world, Brazil. The project consists of a series of photographs of bicycles and their respective owners to popularize pedalling in the city.

“In Brazil, the bicycle is still seen as an impractical means of transportation. Most cities don’t have the infrastructure needed to adequately cater for cyclists”.

One of the goals of Pedalo is to show that the bicycle is one of the most democratic ways of moving around. Anyone can use them, regardless of social class, and it’s funny to see how each looks like its owner…
