Embracing Freedom: The Bike as a State of Mind

In a world driven by engines, the bike stands out as a symbol of simplicity, joy, and the pure pleasure of being the sole force driving one’s journey. Photographer Margherita Loba Amadio’s new series features cyclist Alessia De Marco, and celebrates the essence of cycling. Together, they beautifully illustrate the transformative power of the bike, transcending it from a mere object to a liberating state of being.

The bike is not an object, it’s a state of mind. It’s the wonderful, warm feeling of freedom I get when I ride.
I reconnect to my body, and become the only engine I need.

Alessia De Marco
