Art exhibition celebrates London's diverse cycle tribes

Ugo Gattoni's portraits for the Museum of London document the rise of the urban cyclist...

In recent years a number of extremely diverse tribes, linked only by their love of two wheels, have sprung up around London. 

Whether Shoreditch fixie types, yummy mummies on Pashleys or those Darwin's Deli sandwich peddlers, they are all celebrated in a series of new portraits commissioned by the Museum of London.

Created by Ugo Gattoni, the ten drawings form part of London Cycles, a display of historic bikes from the Penny Farthing onwards, right up to today's Boris Bike.

London Cycles is on at The Museum of London between 5 July and 22 September, free admission.
