“She is amazing! How does she do that?“ people whisper while watching Ines. It seems so simple and easy when you watch her—she does everything so smoothly and just modestly smiles when everybody starts clapping and shouting. Ines‘ performances really challenge one’s imagination and ability to figure out how does she do that.
Ines Brunn is from Germany, but for the past seven years she has called Beijing, China home. Together with friend Federico Moro she opened a fixed gear bicycle and juggling equipment shop “Natooke“ in 2009. Along with Shannon Bufton, they lead a cycling group “Smarter Than Car“ (stcbj.com) to promote biking and preserve the unique cycling culture of Beijing through various rides and events. It’s been 21 years since Ines started artistic cycling, and has since performed on her bike in many countries around the world.
