Guinness World Record holder Matti Hemming does some flatland stunt riding around Bristol
Global Fat Bike Day is fast approaching…
Cyclists are the pit-canaries of the roads. If they’re numerous, dressed in ordinary clothing and wide-ranging in age you can tell that you are in a location where cycling is “normal” in society and where it is safe enough, and feels subjectively safe enough, that everyone cycles. If people feel they have to dress to be safe then this is a sign that they do not have adequate subjective safety.Pit Canaries, David Hembrow
Photo from Cass Gilbert’s Peruvian expedition.
“I made this image on the morning of the last day of Burning Man. I had been out looking for feature pictures through the morning after the Man had burned. As I rode my bike, the dust was blowing hard and obscuring artwork that had dotted the Playa. Instead of riding my bike up close to the artwork pictured, I chose to stop a distance away and wait until a gust of wind blew the fine powder-like talc dust across the scene.
By sitting and waiting for just a moment, I was allowed to make an image that helped capture the scale of the art while allowing the harsh environment to play a role.”
