It's a big city. 20 million, they say. I rediscovered riding small wheels after a year in Cairo. Over time I made new friends who shared my enthusiasm. We went looking for places to ride, adventures to have. Each time we found a new playground it would get shut down for one reason or another, but we kept on looking.

Injuries only stopped us for a while. If the bikes broke we ordered parts from abroad, or fixed what we had with bolts and tape. At first we were just two. Now we're a thousand.
