If you live in NYC, owning a bike is as much a necessity as knowing good pizza places and despising tourists. For most, it’s the easiest way to get around that doesn’t require filling up a MetroCard. Most of the rides you’ll see as you navigate the city blocks are run-of-the-mill two-wheelers that you can pick up at any bike shop. They would make for a really boring photo gallery. Chris Arnade decided to capture some of the city’s more interesting bikes along with the people that ride them (some of whom are even more interesting than the bikes).
