The pandemic in Peru led to a surge in sales of small motorcycles (up to 200cc) for transporting goods. In the first quarter of 2021, motorcycle sales increased by 57.7% compared to the same period in 2020, giving rise to a new motorcycle culture in Lima. Facing unemployment and uncertainty, young people in Lima started buying motorcycles for job opportunities and affordability. They began providing delivery services for their community, starting with cheap, used bikes and later upgrading to more powerful models. These riders have claimed abandoned public spaces as meeting places to discuss motorcycles, share tips, and showcase their skills. They have developed a unique style and code of conduct, wearing colorful shirts and chunky sneakers. Known as the “Steel Riders,” they have become essential in their communities, representing a new urban identity and youth culture. Fearlessly riding through the streets of Lima, they embody a rebellious and adventurous spirit.
