©Barry Sandland/TIMB – Tall bike is a simple name for a two meter tall ride.

“You get on and off the bike just like with any bike. It is the same.”

Photographer’s notes: He is probably right. Like so many issues we have, we imagine that it cannot be the same. Our minds convince us that this has to be impossible – and it becomes just stat. People riding tall bikes have to have spent ages gaining balance , they are some kind of tightrope walker. I watched the tall bike riders again and again through the day and the more I saw them, the more it seemed they were just like any other bike.
