I Love Riding in the City – Yannick Read

Yannick-ReadNAME: Yannick Read
OCCUPATION: Cycling Advocate, Inventor

Where do you live and what’s it like riding in your city?

I live in Kingston, a town on the banks of the river Thames about 10 miles from the center of London. We British enjoy a good moan, and for sure things here aren’t perfect for those of us on two wheels, but for me cycling through London is a joy.

Or just say whatever you want about riding in the city… Poetry anyone?

I’m no poet, but I express my passion for cycling artistically through creating unusual bikes. At first glance they appear little more than frivolity, but each has an underlying message—I like to think of it as subversion by design.
