Two bicycle commuters, Stan Engelbrecht and Nic Grobler, from South Africa started a project only earlier this year titled Bicycle Portraits. However, they already have a stunning set of photographs and are starting to build a picture of who the people are that ride bicycles in South Africa and answer the question of why so few people choose a bicycle as a form of transport. They will be compiling this into what looks set to be a fantastic photographic book, which will tell an eye opening story into the South African (bicycle) culture. There is also a nice little video on vimeo which is worth watching too.

    Really like this, such an original idea and the portraits are perfect. Different types of people with their personalities shown through their bikes.
