Biking Culture……Non-bicycle blogs (Part II): The Sartorialist

with 2 comments


Even if style and fashion don’t hold much interest for you, the quality of The Sartorialist‘s spontaneous portrait photography is consistently excellent.

Plus, the site’s creator, Scott Schuman, seems to be on the lookout for interesting people — mostly street chic woman — using bicycles for their everyday transportation. For that reason alone its worth a look.

(Note: I believe Copanhagen Cycle Chic was the first to popularize the-girl-riding-a-bike genre. UPDATE: a couple more interesting sites along the same line have been pointed out to me– Bike Fancy and bikes + babes)

Finally, a beach cruiser bicycle used for what it’s intended for: cruising the beach!

This is not a model, just a regular New Yorker spotted by The Sartorialist.

The bicycle, however, doesn’t seem appropriate for the task at hand (where’s the basket to hold those groceries and there’s water in the street, but no fenders to stay dry?).

Trying to lock-up your bike without getting your semi-transparent skirt dirty…I’ve been there, haven’t we all, lol?

  1. Hi Nathan, I am sure I can count on you to check out the chic women using bicycles on The Sartorialist since fashion is not of interest to you šŸ˜‰ . I’ve heard of The Sartorialist, but never got a chance to view it so thanks for introducing it to me. Love it!
