In the middle of a busy street in Sydney, a man is making the most of a late afternoon sun with his bicycle.
The bike, named Mr B, is an essential piece of kit.
“I use it to get around town and it keeps me going,” he says.
He also uses it to carry his backpack and a few snacks.
“It’s a nice little bike.
It’s easy to ride, I can carry it around town.
And it’s got a decent range of pedals.”
Mr B has been riding the bike for almost a decade, and in the process has earned a reputation for his style.
“When I was a kid, I used to ride around on my bicycle and it was like I was walking around in a park,” he tells The Verge.
“But I just got lazy and stopped doing that.”
The man, who prefers not to give his full name, is now in his mid-50s and has lived in the area for decades.
He says he has been taking the bike around town since he was about five years old, and has taken it on several other journeys.
Mr B first started using the bike as a kid in the 1960s.
“We used to run across the street from my parents’ house to get to school and back, and then it would go through the town,” he said.
“Then one day, I was riding my bike home from school.
I’ve got to go home’. “
So I was like, ‘This is it.
I’ve got to go home’.
And so I did.”
By the age of 12, Mr B had built up a reputation as an expert cyclist, and was regularly invited to ride the bike in the city.
“My father and mother used to tell me, ‘If you’re going to go riding, don’t worry about getting it right’,” he said, adding that he had been encouraged by his friends to use the bike to travel around Sydney.
“One time, I rode my bike across the city for two hours, and they just gave me their autograph.”
A decade later, Mr Bozeman says he had become bored with his hobby, so he turned his interest to cycling and began cycling around the country.
“In Australia, there was this huge cycle-sharing network,” he explained.
Mr Boiseman’s interest in cycling has since spread around the world. “
After a while, I realised I could ride the whole way back to the car.”

“This is how I got into it,” he added.
He has taken the bike along as far as Australia and Europe, but he says he would never do it if it wasn’t for the love of the bike, and the chance to ride it at night.
You can’t get lost. “
The other thing that I love is it’s a little bit quiet.
You can’t get lost.
And the cycle tracks are pretty good.”
Mr Dombrowski, who lives in Adelaide, Australia, also enjoys cycling, but has recently switched to a new hobby of cycling in his own back yard.
He first rode his bike around his home in the 1980s, but decided to give it a try in 2011.
“With my wife, I started using it in our back yard as a way to go out for a walk,” he told The Verge, adding “I love the way it’s comfortable.”
“I think it’s just really lovely.”
Mr Cottrell, a cyclist and author, told The Australian Financial Review that he uses the bike a lot when he’s in Adelaide and Perth.
“At home, you can always ride the motor home,” he explains.
“Even if you’re in a big city, you have a bike.
You don’t need a car.”
“When you’re riding your bike around Sydney, it’s very easy to get lost.”
He says the bike has become one of his favourite parts of his life.
“You can just do whatever you want on the bike,” he adds.
“There are a lot of things you can do with the bike.”
The bike has earned Mr Cotsrell a reputation in the cycling community for its ease of use, ease of manoeuvre, and safety.
“They’re so good at what they do,” he concludes.
It can be quite dangerous, because the front brake doesn’t always work as well as it should.” “
Most cyclists ride on the back.
It can be quite dangerous, because the front brake doesn’t always work as well as it should.”
But Mr Cotrell says he feels the bike can also be a good alternative for those who aren’t keen on riding around town, or who don’t want to use a
