    No, Scott, there is not …. this photo is insane. I appreciate that it’s in black and white – so you can focus on the texture of the tights on her leg …. the texture of her bag …

    This could have been taken in the ’40s. Very vintage feel.

    Thank you,

    From a safety perspective she should probably wear a helmet and some flat shoes though…

        That’s funny … I’m usually the first to comment that helmets are a MUST when on a bike. I always wear one, even if I am wearing shoes like this … and yes, I have cycled in heels.

          I’ve spent the last 7 years of my life commuting on a bike. With heels, which are never a problem. And without a helmet, because I am French and even if the law says I must (I think – not even sure, might only be complementary) nobody does and nobody cares. My whole family rides and I’ve never seen my grandfather, who’s a true rider, wearing a helmet. To push it a bit more, this is a rental bike belonging to the city of Paris, which provides bikes but no helmets. That is to point out the bike helmet situation in France – so don’t blame her.

          I know a helmet is useful for security, but I’m having trouble putting mine on everytime (I now live in Australia, and not wearing one here is illegal) because the greatest thing about cycling is feeling the wind in your (long) hair. People with helmets will never get that. This sensation of liberty, going fast, having the wind in your ears…especially in the countryside at night, that’s incredible. Plus: when you have long hair, you can’t tie them with a helmet. You just have to suffer the heat of having them on your neck.

          So…I hope France will stay the way it is about helmets…even though security should be first. But I’d like to have the figures: are bike injuries mainly brain/head injuries?

            helmets don’t seem necessary until you nearly die or die as a result of not wearing one. as an highly active urban cyclist in nyc for 13 years i can safely say that this ‘style situation’ and others like it are much more about “how to pose stylishly on your bike” or “how to gingerly ride your bike for two or three blocks, and then pose stylishly on/or next to your bike”. it’s is fine, but much more about fashion/style and not real bike riding or functionality. these can come together for certain, but i have only ever seen one or two images on this blog where they have.

    Is that leg shape not a bit of a visual cliche by now? (Signalling: Paris, Moulin Rouge, graceful, sophisticated, feminine, sexy, or all of the above?)

    • Monsieur Marcel

      I could deconstruct that leg shape visual because I find it trite or enjoy it because “it is what it is.”
      I’m biased towards the latter.

    Well, there was one of Garance a good while back I haven’t forgotten. She was half-way into a car on her phone with one very fine leg doing a balancing act.
