I spotted Xavier on his Giant semi-recumbent bike as he was about to take a few laps around Prospect Park. I’d never seen one like this. Xavier’s had this bike for seven years and his description of it confirmed what I already suspected: “It’s comfortable.” Add the handlebar-mounted radio, and you’re cruising in style. Xavier lives in Park Slope and is a fellow photographer who also loves to document cities. I always appreciate when a photographer lets me shoot them, since we usually like to stay behind the lens.
I stupidly didn’t get his full name, so Xavier: Leave a comment – I’d love to check out your work.
