Dear Motorist – Guatemalan Cyclists

Dear Motorist,

I know our country is not bike friendly, and the city we share is place built for cars; yes, over the years cars have gained lots of space, taking pedestrians and cyclists to an absurd border.

You may think, that owning a bike means use it only at parks or specific places, but the truth is, the road is for you and me. My biking experience is not really long, a little more than a year, but on these time I’ve experience some really bad situations. All of them, because you, who drive a 2 ton vehicle, could not wait 30 seconds for me or any other cyclist friend to cross the street. No one has hit me yet, but I’ve been to damn close to that, I don’t like it, it is not funny or deserved for any of us.

So, I must tell you I am a son, a friend, a brother, a cyclist, a boyfriend, a student, a teacher, a person; and as you I have dreams, goals, bad days and good days. Share the roads with us, we got the same rights in the end; I promise to do everything to make myself visible, to be causious and respectful, as I expect the same from you.

From a Guatemalan cyclist, to every Guatemalan motorist.
