Green Light Go - The Birth of Cycle Chic

This photo was recently called 'The Photo That Launced a Million Bicycles' by a journalist who interviewed me about starting the Cycle Chic Movement. What a humbling accolade.


After waiting in a relaxed state for the light to change, this is the moment when the muscles tense and the legs propel the bike forward. Very cycle chic.


I love Copenhagen.


Addendum: For those who know the Cycle Chic set, it may be interesting to know that it was this spontaneous shot that started the whole global Cycle Chic movement. -
