“I met this guy Pedro in Portugal a few weeks ago. I would see him pretty much every night riding this same church in the middle of Praia da Luz. He talked about being the only rider in his town. He also talked about how difficult it was for him to replace broken bike parts and keep up with what was going on in bmx due to lack of money, availability of magazines, bike parts and the internet. Pedro said that he was not religious, although I am sure he spent more time in these church grounds than anyone else in the whole of Praia da Luz.”– Jim Newrick.
