Why by bycicle?

OtraVidaesPosible was born from the experience of watching the world from a bicycle. The bike breaks down the barriers of class, promotes sociability and integration between different cultures. Travel by bicycle lets you enjoy the natural beauty, feeling the connection between nature and our inner being. This lifestyle lets you abstract from the prejudices of unique thinking that proposes the current status quo and immersing ourselves in other cultures in search of what we call "desire of reality"

 

When we travel this way we learn to live. Learning to live is to learn not to think in terms of success and failure two egocentric concepts that overshadow personal growth that coming from sacrifice and experience of transit. Learning to live is to learn to give up unnecessary objects and conventions that have nothing to do with enriching our inner life. Learning to live is to learn to heal our soul.

 

Through philosophy and trip prolongation we learn to tune into our inner wisdom to feed our spirit and working the highest human values. The experience transcends to renew our life attitude chasing a change of mentality towards a more human thought.
