Bicycle portraits

I have blogged previously about my work in South Africa supporting cycling. It was hard work because there was very little understanding in the planning and engineering industry of the needs of cyclists. Bicycle facilities are thus few and far between and hence there are few brave commuter cyclists out there .
But they are there, and two avid cycle activists and photographers are documenting them in a new book - Bicycle Portraits. It is a beautiful collection of portraits and stories of cyclists and their bikes. Check out the great promotional video here. I loved the music - a Zulu version of Papa was a Rolling Stone.

They are still raising the money to self-publish the book so help them out here.
