Ride Fixed

I chose to explore the culture of fixed-gear cycling by immersing myself in the scene in Leeds; going on regular rides with the Leeds Fixed-Gear group as well as reading, watching and listening to content online.

The result is a publication which studies the subject mostly through 35mm black and white photography but also illustration, typography, image-making, writing and more.

Topics covered in the publication include the history of fixed-gear cycling, who people who ride fixed-gear are, the social aspect, the professional side and others, with the publication having an overall gritty feeling to relate to the rebellious nature of the 'sport'.
