Alexei wrote this story about the different types of bicycle riders in New York. I love all the nutty characters.
The Noble Rider. "In the winter, I wear lots of fedoras and scarves, foulards and tweeds," he says. "And in the summer, basically linens. I would say kind of very English, '30s style--very Evelyn Waugh."
The Fixed-Gear Rider. "There’s a certain rebelliousness to the act of riding in the city."
The Vintage-Bike Fashion Gal. "Don’t be afraid to wear a skirt and heels." (Yay!)
The Weekend Warrior. "The bike just wants to move," she says. "It's like a Formula One race car."
