Fa­ster & fa­ster

Ci so­no mo­vi­men­ti che si im­pa­ra­no da pic­co­li e non si di­men­ti­ca­no più. Per an­to­no­ma­sia, quel­lo di an­da­re in bi­ci­clet­ta. Le ma­ni di mam­ma o pa­pà che si stac­ca­no dal sel­li­no per la­scia­re spa­zio alle pri­me pe­da­la­te in au­to­no­mia so­no si­no­ni­mo di pre­sen­za e fi­du­cia. Poi ci so­no le ca­du­te, qual­che gi­noc­chio sbuc­cia­to, ma tut­ti ci pas­sa­no, fa par­te del ‘gio­co’. A noi pia­ce la bi­ci­clet­ta Elec­tra Bi­cy­cle (www.elec­tra­bi­ke.com), la ver­sio­ne per bam­bi­ni co­strui­ta con le stes­se ca­rat­te­ri­sti­che di quel­le per grandi, ma in colori gio­co­si e fan­ta­sie su­per­di­ver­ten­ti. by Laura San­tam­bro­gio

The­re are things you learn to do in chil­d­hood that you ne­ver for­get: one of the be­st exam­ples is ri­ding a bi­ke. Mom or dad’s hands let­ting go of the sadd­le to let you pe­dal for the fir­st ti­me all by your­self si­gni­fy pre­sen­ce and tru­st. Then the­re are the falls and scra­ped knees, but eve­ry­thing goes away and is a part of the ‘ga­me’. We li­ke the kids’ ver­sion of the Elec­tra Bi­cy­cle (www.elec­tra­bi­ke.com) that is built wi­th the sa­me fea­tu­res of the bi­kes for adul­ts, but in co­lor­ful nuan­ces and de­light­ful prin­ts.
