cycling… as the norm…

The Sartorialist is doing a great job at capturing moments that always remind me of home.

For me it’s not about fashion in terms of spending lots and lots of money, it’s about style, it’s about being who you are and expressing that. What I love of shots like these is that the bike is just, simply, there. Naturally.

It’s a natural/normal addition to everyday life… you leave home, hop on your bike and off you go.

I remember how hot summers can be in Italy and how horrible was to get out of a car, bus or metro and have all your clothes stuck on you because of the heat/sweat… cycling, despite what people may think, in hot weather actually keeps you cool, especially when wearing the right clothes and when cycling at a slow pace, you know… to go from A to B, not to race from A to B.

So, I hope that sharing these images here can just picture an idea that the bike is a fun, simple and natural way to get about.

  1. These photos are so classy and full of style (as you said, not fashion). I want everyone to see these photos and realize what riding a bike can look like 🙂

    • 😀 I like how the bike seems another simple addition to their style, to their way to go about the everyday life, not like an after-thought or like they are trying to prove a point : ) One of my old school professors looked a tad like the gentleman in the photo and he was so full of character, such an interesting chap lol!
