“I bought this bicycle about ten minutes ago. So, I became a cyclist ten minutes ago, as well.”

Photographer’s notes: This has to be the reason for the second-hand bike market. Bringing somebody back to a bike, a new cyclist after having been off the bike since their childhood.

It seems so odd to me, to chat with people who have not ridden a bike in their lives, or have been off the bike for decades. Riding a bike seems such  natural way to get around when in the city.
