Cycle Wave #172
The rush hours of the mornings and afternoons are an organic wavy affair. In many places in the city the traffic lights divide the tsunami of bicycles into lovely waves so that if you stand, for example, on this bridge in the morning, you'll see a cluster of cyclists cycling past - brief pause - cluster of cyclists cycling past - brief pause... and so on.
A shot of the same Cycle Wave #172, which has advanced further along. A fine portrait of some of our cycling citizens in the morning light.
A while later, Cycle Wave #210 moves elegantly and effortlessly over the bridge.
Strangely, the Nordic sunshine of early spring acts as a tailwind, even when you're cycling into it.
And here's a fitting quote, sent by a reader:
