I stumbled upon these images during a furious evening of making internet. Unfortunately, I can’t remember who tweeted it originally.

Yes, I suck.

Regardless, these images by Tom Olesnevich are lovely indeed. Having nothing to do with racing, they have everything to do with getting your heart racing. Tom manages to capture a tire view essence of his beloved city and all of them are exhilarating.

In Tom’s words:

nyc by bike – During the spring of 2012 I sought to capture and highlight the best of what riding my bicycle in NYC looks like and means to me. This, then, is my love letter to NYC.
