Joanna Goddard's post about the New York Times "field study" of the different types of bicyclists in New York City is just the kind of post that tickles our bicycle fancy. An excerpt (with quotes and pictures) below:
The Noble Rider.
The town bike, with an upright posture and upright air.
"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.
The clearest way to advertise one's skinny-jeans credibility.
"There’s a certain rebelliousness to the act of riding in the city, at least when you're serious riding, not lollipop-riding on a vintage cruiser."
The Vintage-Bike Fashion Gal.
"Brady Bunch" Schwinn exudes a thrift-store chic.
"Don’t be afraid to wear a skirt and heels."
