Cholula is a millenarian town where the progressive urban expansion is making the border between rural and urban increasingly blurred. The proliferation of cars and the privileges they receive make the streets increasingly dangerous. In spite of this, a very extended community of local people refuses to abandon the bicycle as a means of transport, thus becoming the shelter of a tradition that is, in fact, the bet of the future.
