Soho, U.K., 29 January 2006 – A bicycle sits parked against the light pole deep in the shadows of this image of of life on Soho’s Berwick Street.   After reviewing the images I took in London in 2006 I found two with bicycles in them.  Granted I was not specifically looking for cyclists but I would imagine if I were to go today most of the images would have a cyclist in them.  I read an article in New Scientist that says ridership increased 61% from 2005-2009 in the U.K.  As cycling becomes more popular so do altercations with drivers who are, as many of us, pressed for time and in too much of a hurry to get to their destination to have sufficient respect for a bicyclist.
