Bicycle : all day - every day

A woman riding a bike with a grandchild, shoping bags, and bakery goods to sell.

Context of the observation

A 50 years old woman was riding her bike with her grandchild, shopping bags, and bakery produtcs to sell. She was in a place that had no bike lanes. The child was holding her, but with no security devices. A small basket holds the goods and the shopping bags. She has many clients in different neighborhoods where she goes once a week to sell the goods, when she does not has enough clients, she knocks on doors to try to sell then to a new group/ family.

Bicycle is a good way to be able to go eveywere and has a low cost, but the safety of the kid, if a accident happens. He should be using at least a helmet. When she is doing her selling, it is a good choise, because she can go to more houses and find more clients. Also, she does not need to carry her shopping bags, and riding her bike is a health exercice.
