Chalet Magazine


Dollar Cabs & Shimano Shifters: Phil Penman photographed a bicycle race at the former Floyd Bennet Airport in New York, for the first issue of the magazine Chalet. In a city where the bicycle still has to fight to be recognized as a valid form of transport, there are very few bike racing circuits. For their self-organized races, biking athletes have to make do with badly sealed strips, like at the former airport.
