Bicycle Portraits

Nkosilathi Mpofu Helen st., Sandton, Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa Photo: Bicycle Portraits.

Stan Engelbrecht & Nic Grobler’s 6000 kilometer journey around South Africa by bicycle aimed to be a photographic study of South African commuter culture (something that is nearly non-existent here), but it turned into a portrait of a nation through the bicycles that they own and ride every day, revealing all manner of social, historical, class and cultural nuances never imagined.

Stan and Nic are seeking funding on Kickstarter and we first noticed their work last year on our link blog.

Lily the Trail Shredding Dog

One of the best rides of the year for me this year was on a 29r, bombing a downhill. This Bro’s ride was even better, cause his dog named Lily shreds with him. HT Pink Bike.

Mud Snorkeling

What’s that in the mud pit at #SSCXWC? A lost helmet maybe? A Cross racer lost a contact?

Nope, a dude mud snorkeling. Also the devil-horns being thrown.
