The paper focuses on the urban cycling practices of bike trails and BMX in order to illustrate that these practices are perhaps not as "resistant" as previous accounts have argued. Using ethnographic methods, it discusses the practice and reception of display, sociality, and authority inherent in these public performances. These styles of riding largely perform the social and cultural norms enshrined in the redevelopment of the South Bank.
