“The weightier hardcover “Cycle Chic” outnumbers the softcover “Cycle Style” by nearly 100 pages, and the narratives inside each continues to diverge. Shot by acclaimed photographer Horst Friedrichs, “Cycle Style” showcases the 15-year London resident’s love affair with his adopted city from the first page. He dedicates the book to the city and its stylishly eclectic cyclists who reside and ride around it, capturing the essence of their character—from the hip Shoreditch crowd to the perfectly manicured Saville Row riders and everyone in between.
By contrast, “Cycle Chic” has been compiled by Mikael Colville-Andersen, filmmaker, street photographer, urban mobility expert and the man behind popular cycle blogs Copenhagen Cycle Chic andSlow Bicycle Movement. Rather than limiting himself to just one city, Colville-Andersen has created a showcase of snaps from across the globe including Tokyo, London, Copenhagen, Vancouver, Paris and New York.”
