Ticket to Ryde

Tell you what, if anyone is going to give the street style photographer value for money, then it’s gonna be scooterists. Every August Bank Holiday, Ryde belongs to these lads and ladies; they fill the resort with the sound and smells of their two-stroke bikes. The amount of effort that goes into keeping their vintage vehicles in pristine, or at least roadworthy, condition must not be underestimated. Commanding an equal amount of effort are the ensembles created by the scooterists. With our trusty street-cam in hand, we mingled with the folks at Western Gardens to record the outfits that caught our eye. Click through to see the details.
