Get on your bike and work that look with the aid of this colourful compendium of snapshots from around the world of everyday bike-riders who are redefining mobile fashion and emphasizing the fun of city cycling

No one is more attuned to the explosion of these new trends than Mikael Colville-Andersen, who launched the first cycling fashion blog, ‘Copenhagen Cycle Chic’, more than five years ago.
