Project founders Stan Engelbrecht and Nic Grobler began documenting cyclists in early 2010. They’re infinitely curious about people and their relationship to bikes. The portraits may be gathered into a real-life book if the project gets enough backers on kickstarter [6]: the closing date is September 16th and there’s still a few thousand dollars left to go. Backers who pledge $50 or more effectively pre-order a copy of the book [6]. Englebrchant and Grober are also creating video portraits as they go [3], fascinated by the diverse population of South Africa that is united behind their bikes.
