Biking Culture……The New Yorker bicycle covers, Part III

with 2 comments

I’ve said it before: I think The New Yorker has a thing for bicycles (see Part I and Part II in this series of posts)

This time, with the introduction of NYC’s bicycle share program, the storied literary magazine has a genuinely newsworthy reason to feature bicycles on their cover.

There was also this cover from back in February.

Can you count all the hipster tropes?

  1. thick-framed eyewear
  2. food truck
  3. body ink
  4. beard
  5. knit cap
  6. duffle coat w/ toggles
  7. discriminating (if not condescending) gaze
  8. Brooklyn residence

Did I miss anything?

  1. Is that a hole-in-the-lobe kind of earring I see?

  2. Nice! I think it is a tribal ear piercing. I missed that one.
