When your bike is your car, you learn to adapt your riding style to all situations: rain, luggage, kids, formal wear and pregnancy.
While for those who live in cities or towns without decent public transportation, living car-free means having no choice but to make their bike work under every circumstance. In my case, Barcelona has fairly extensive metro and bus systems, but there are times when it is much quicker- and more fun- to get from point A to point B by bicycle.
In this video, I- now 8 months pregnant- documented my bike commute from home to the hospital. No, it wasn’t to give birth- I still have 3 weeks to consider that one-, but for a bit of routine blood work. Today, I simply scoped out the best bike paths of Barcelona and the ideal city bikes.
I also have a video on transporting furniture by bike.
