Sartorialist likes Velib

Two bike posts about the Sartorialist in one week!

This week, Scott Schuman is posting fashion photos from Paris. He writes of the Velib rental bikes:

It’s no secret to bike culture bloggers that street fashion photographer Scott Schuman aka The Sartorialist is a fan of bicycles. Schuman sometimes gets around New York City by bike to take his photos of style on the street, and he sometimes includes the bike in his photo frame.

It’s been a while since I looked at his blog, but I dropped by The Sartorialist blog to see what he’s been up to lately. I love that when Schumer travels overseas, bikes are often just part of the background. Click on the images to see them large and for details.
