Get on your bike and work that look with Cycle Chic, a colourful compendium of snapshots from around the world of everyday bike-riders who are redefining mobile fashion and emphasising the fun of city cycling.
The pictures celebrate the latest trends in urban cycling street style, from gritty messengers to tweed-sporting bankers, from Pashley princesses to high-tech roadies. Cycle chic is everywhere you look.
Published in a compact format, the hundreds of images in this ingenious collection curated by Mikael Colville-Andersen present the most charismatic combinations of individual style and practical function and demonstrate how far cycle attire has moved beyond lycra.
Mikael Colville-Andersen is the founder of Copenhagenize, a website and consultancy established to advise governments and policy-makers on the importance of urban cycling.
