Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

An acclaimed photographer introduces the incredible variety of stylish cyclists pedaling through city streets in this stunningly illustrated book. No city boasts of a more fashion-forward population of bicyclists than London. Photographer Horst Friedrichs meets his subjects in their own milieu: zooming around the city's streets on two wheels.

About the Author

Horst Friedrichs' photographs have appeared in Stern, The Independent, and The New York Times. He is the author of I'm One: 21st Century Mods and Or Glory: 21st Century Rockers (both published by Prestel). He lives in London.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Vernon Forbes on April 10, 2012
Format: Paperback
This book has no text. It is a collection of pictures of contemporary people posing outdoors with their bicycles. These are portraits instead of random photographs. All the bicycles are spottlessly clean. A number of the subjects are extremely well dressed and wearing wool. A few of them are wearing armbands that identify the "Tweed Run", an annual ride in London. While a number of men have waxed moustaches and vintage clothes there is no dress code and the posed nature of the portraits gives the subjects the appearance of dressing for a Vivienne Westwood parade documenting the diversity of what people think it means to "dress up" and look sharp in the year 2012. It is appropriate to anyone interested in society, fashion or bicycles. As a book of picture portrait photographs this book compliments the book- Bicycles: Vintage People on Photo Postcards (The Bodleian Library - Photo Postcards from the Tom Phillips Archive). As a set you can see the change in how people want to be seen and how riding a bicycle has always been both a personal and social statement as well as a means of transportation. The pictures are extremely engaging and one cannot help but see oneself.

I bought this book as personal encouragement to continue my own style of dress while riding a bike.

Many of the cyclists I see, have what would be called 'cycling clothes' on -- instead of just plain every-day clothing. Personal style gets lost in cookie-cutter clothing -- particularly the sort of neoprene short, loud jersey, and of course the safety helmut that many cyclists state-side wear.

This book portrays the bicyclists as people who use the bike as a means to an end, and don't compromise personal style in the process.

Very interesting - - very refreshing. Thoroughly enjoyed all the pictures.

I love Cycle Style, I have a vintage Bike that is always being improved. The pictures are incredible but I miss about something less impersonal.
