I plucked this interesting black and white up from the fast flowing current of the Internet. I don't know anything about the image other than it has elements of some of my favorite things -bikes, telegraph insulators and an old steam train. We really can't tell who wins this race but for the moment it looks like the velopedist has got the edge on the hissing and chugging giant. However it turned out I love how this picture captures the bicycle spirit and that urge to turn pedal power into speed. Man and machine at its finest.
