The second part of the interview is now available. Go to http://situp-cycle.com to see Talking to Mikael.

Mikael ColVille-Andersen runs two of the world's most influential bike blogs, Copenhagen cycle chic and Copenhagenize.com.

I sent a colleague, Violeta Bran-Lafourcade to interview him recently. Back came the footage for me to compose and cut.

When I saw the material, Violeta had captured, I was struck by his vacuum cleaner story, and how this very down to earth view of the bike, the humble bike, contrasted with the photos of women looking so elegant, as featured on Mikael's blog, Copenhagen Cycle chic and it's derivatives around the world.

Some younger women have found my rhapsodizing about beauty on the bike rather obscene. I wonder if it is? It's true I chose more images of men than women.

Ours is a world in which there's so little unaffected beauty, to seems to me. The sit-up bike's ability to compose people , men and women, into graceful images of nonchalant travel, does appeal to me.

Maybe it's just because I'm an old guy, not sure. What do you think?
