The Cyclists of Northern Europe- A Photo Essay

Copenhagen

Copenhagen, Amsterdam and Paris are chock-full of beautiful cyclists.

Tom and I spent a couple of summers over the last few years in northern Europe. Our mission was simple: find a bakery in every port, drink the world’s best coffee, and photograph the people.

Europe’s cycling culture is inspiring. There’s no fuss, no special clothing, no fancy gear, no $3000 bikes. It is simply a way of getting from Å to ß, so to speak.

What they do have, however, is infrastructure. At least in the Netherlands and in Scandinavia, there are endless, orderly, safe bike lanes. (Paris, on the other hand, is glorious chaos. And would you want it any other way?)

Enjoy.
