Iraís González Maya

Hello, I’m Maya en Bici.

I am a professional journalist, a free spirit, and a dedicated cycling enthusiast. My life revolves around two wheels, and I’ve been using bicycles as my primary mode of transportation for over 11 years.

I’ve been a resident of Mexico City since birth, and I have a strong passion for traveling. I’ve spent eight years working as a reporter for digital and print media. I adore writing and connecting with new friends to share experiences. This led me to create the Maya en Bici platform, where I combine my passions and promote bicycle usage by offering tips, advice, and personal stories related to cycling.

The bicycle is not just a mode of transport for me; it’s an integral part of my lifestyle, and I dream of a more compassionate world. You can often find me deeply immersed in the cycling community.

So, how can I make a difference?

By sharing my knowledge with those who are interested in transitioning to non-motorized mobility but don’t know where to begin. I believe that forming partnerships with like-minded individuals in civil society, who are passionate about cycling, can help establish bike schools, both online and in physical spaces, to support our common goal of getting more people on bikes.

I’m particularly excited about focusing our efforts on women, girls, and boys, who often face limitations and infringements on their right to public mobility. I envision an educated, well-informed, and empowered society that can demand improvements in public spaces and safety conditions. To achieve this, we need to prepare and disseminate valuable resources to guide those interested in advocating for better conditions in their communities.

If the infrastructure for cycling doesn’t exist, let’s work together to build it.

Let’s roll!
