Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A book of photographs of mostly smartly dressed college-age women in Europe looking good riding bicycles in European cities. There are only a a few pages of text. None are studio portraits. Out of 77 riders depicted in the first chapter only 11 are male and 3 have gray hair. Only 2 older women appear in the first chapter; one in the background and the other covering her face with a hat & sunglasses. The rest are good-looking well-dressed college-age women. Everyone is bicycle riding in urban settings. No rural scenes appear. Foliage or plants only appear in 30 out of 72 photographs in the first chapter. The majority are white people. Of the 77 people depicted in the first chapter 2 are black, 2 are Arabic and 4 are Asian. The bicycles are all upright bikes with a few adult tricycles. No recumbents or bicycle races appear. This is a book about commuting.

It used to be that the only people who rode bicycles were people who could not afford cars. With the recent collapse of the World economy cycling is more of a necessity all over the World. In trying to deal with their new-found poverty the World might look to see how Europe is dealing with it. As expensive as it is to travel to Europe this is a handbook that saves you the fare. While poverty drives the World to ride bicycles, this book documents the European twist on how they do it.

I love picture books that inspire me. I one of those visual people and this book does have text but just enough. It gets me motivated to ride my bike everyday.
