Even though nowadays motorcycles are much more popular as means of transportation around Antigua Guatemala, you can still find plenty of bicycles, sometimes even antique bicycles such as the one shown here. Motorcycles are popular now because I believe they are more affordable. Also, people might have a car or van, but to move around Antigua Guatemala, the motorcycles or bicycles are so much easier to handle and park. By the way, this picture was taken on Calle del Arco during one of the Antigua Photo Walks that I am leading; come and join me next time you are in town.
