In New York, one of our most always-on-the-go cities, a lot of the going is on two wheels. The bike-friendly Big Apple’s avid cyclist population is celebrated in this collection of images by photographer Sam Polcer, whose popular blog, PreferredMode.com, also attests to his favorite way of getting around town. ­Every photo—of commuters, BMX kids, fashionistas and a spectrum of other pedalers and pumpers from all the city’s five boroughs—is accompanied by a caption with the subject’s name, what kind of bike they’re riding, where the picture was taken, and where they’re heading. Riding a bike never looked so cool.
