    As one who owns, commutes and races bicycles, I love any bike shot. But, the lack of helmet always troubles me. Someone needs to make/design a nice looking helmet for the sartorially advanced, as there are for scooters/Vespas.

    L’Ă©lĂ©gant. La page de garde d’un roman. Un personnage de film. Quel personnage. La photo est magnifique.

    Beautiful photo ! would kind of expect a man like that to sit in a fancy car, rather than on a bike, this makes the photo even cooler !

    Beautiful as always, but I think you need to take more black and white photographs. They are striking.

    Really beautiful. It’s funny: When I was in Paris over the summer I noticed tons of men in suits on bikes. I love it! So elegant, but with a dash of humor.

    A timeless photograph…My first innitiative for this man would be Wall Street; there is such a Upper West side euphoria to him and his presence, perhaps minus the ancient bike…he seems…compelling…Or maybe the black and white colourings of this photo is arousing such narrative within me…

    Love photos of well-dressed men and women in cycling. This shot is very beautiful, almost like that of the woman dressed in elegant black with a bicycle.

    What a striking photo. A study in black, white, and silver. It makes me think how most guys today have set themselves limits in when and where they will wear a suit.

    @AnthonyC ridiculous to say the least, you have been brainwashed by the culture of fear.

    I love this shot. The light is amazing. I just watched Henri Cartier-Bresson’s documentary last night and it reminds me of one of his moments. He was so amazing at catching movement.

    @Terentius. I buy your view too, and a helmet would look terrible on this gentleman. But not in major metropolitan Cities – even with bike handling skills there are so many bad drivers and that is something I can’t control. I let it slide in the country – I’ll die happy with with wind in my hair.

    completely agree with Anthony C about helmets for bicycles, but I fear they are too thin to make any hard head wear look good. Great pic though.

    I am a big fan of black and white photography because it allows you to focus on the composition and subject instead of being distracted by all those colors.

    The Italians have elevated bicycle riding to such a level of elegance. The man on this bike looks beautifully dressed, well-groomed and successful….on a bike! Wow. He wouldn’t look better even if he were driving a Ferrari.

    I agree with Anthony C., he needs a helmet! Also, how does he prevent bike chain grease from getting on those sleek, tailored pants? I would like to know so I can ride my bicycle around town dressed just as stylishly.

    That lighting makes this shot. His tie print combined with the suit is really nice, gives him an air of being classy but…genuine. And I’m loving the little light on his own bicycle!
