Bikes at Work Where You Live, Part 1

Wow.

Our call for pictures of work bikes elicited such an overwhelming response -- more than 300 photos -- that we almost didn't know where to begin. It's truly inspirational and delightful to see how people around the world use bicycles
for work (and in some cases to haul some serious gear for play). There seems to be no limit to the inventiveness and resourcefulness of cyclists.

Because of the richness and variety of the pictures you sent (and keep sending), we'll be running at least one and maybe two more slide shows on this theme. Keep watching this space.

For now, here's a selection of some of our favorites, spanning the globe from Beijing to Bogotá to San Francisco.

Many thanks to all our contributors, including those at ITDP, Cyclelicious, Tucson Bike Lawyer, Bikejuju, Bikes and the City, Utility Cycling, Cenas a Pedal and Rock the Bike.

If you've missed our past slide shows, on bike traffic and space hogs, you might want to check them out.
