Pause for Thought

Urban cycling is motion and momentum but it is also the pauses between the movement. The similarities between pedestrianism and urban cycling are many, not least in the simple act of waiting for a light to change.

Such moments of pause are often elegant and aesthetic.

So, I'd like to put a cycling book in a coffee shop for inspiration. I have yet to find a nonfiction book that isn't frightening or otherwise off-putting. Any recommendations for a coffee table/picture book? Is "the picture that launched a thousand bicycles" in any book? I tried just putting "cycle chic" into Amazon's search and it was traumatizing, so I thought I'd just come straight to the source. Thanks.
