A very ordinary Paris bike moment


We love this photo by Eric Parker not only because it is lovely, but also because it depicts bicycle use as the every day activity that it is. No big deal, just check in, pick up your bike and take off slapping your bag into the basket. Off you go.
The way it should be.
Thanks to Eric Britton for photo and language.

C'est magnifique!

I will add though, that while I agree with the sentiment, I look at that row of anonymous bikes and think "gosh, I love MY bike, the one that I made pretty, the one that reflects me".

I would love a world in which these photos of Velibs would replace or extend the photos of yellow cabs in New York (or any other public transport) but a world in which there is still room and appreciation for an individual.
