Cicloficina do Porto

Things to do Baixa

Time Out says

Do you have a bicycle lying around the house and you’ve stopped using it because there’s a belt drive or a pedal missing or because you have a flat tire? Is it due to that lame excuse that you haven’t gone for a ride in years and rather pollute the environment by using your cars just to walk 100 metres? It’s exactly to do something about this unhealthy behaviour that Cicloficina came about. It’s recent in Porto, but it’s actually something pretty common in other European countries. When Sérgio, Daniel and Hugo met at the Portuguese Critical Mass gathering (a non-motorized vehicle run), they decided to create a shop for bikes. “We’re not being mechanics for free”, they say. “The goal is to be proactive and to bring bikes back to the streets and teach the owners ways to solve some simple problems.”
