Bicycle: Around the World
Gibbs Smith, 2002 - Photography - 416 pages
In our car-crazed world, it is the bicycle that exemplifies many freedoms. It is rugged, unhampered, athletic, straightforward and independent. And as an added bonus, it is a simple machine anyone can learn to perform maintenance on. For years, photographer Linda Svendsen has captured images of bicycles from around the world providing glimpses of the machine in all its forms and uses combined. With over 200 images, BICYCLE is a true celebration of one of the world's classic mode of transportation that will inspire you to leave the SUV at home and bike whenever and wherever you can.
