Sometimes a little verbal abuse between cyclists is just fun

@Barry Sandland/TIMB – In the pursuit of a different image, some people are very cooperative.

“I love my Cannondale. I have had it for many many years and it has one on many, many miles with me.”

Photographer’s notes: There was a trio of riders all shot in the same session. They were sitting behind us at a cafĂ© and then a chat started when I admired one of the bikes. This led to a session of gentle verbal abuse between us, all in good humour, as we teased each other, talking trash about the bikes, why one was better than the other, why I was better than everyone. There is something so nice about friendly abuse just for the fun of it. When I asked for photos of each, they were more than willing. In the search for something more than a man with a bike, I asked him to have a bit of fn. He was as up for a laugh as he was up for abuse.
