Without a doubt, this is our favorite freewheeling photograph of the late, great Christopher Hitchens, whose passing we can barely comprehend. So we turn to the words of Graydon Carter, who writes of this image in his touching memoriam:
“I once sent him out on a mission to break the most niggling laws still  on the books in New York City. One such decree forbade riding a bicycle  with your feet off the pedals. The photograph that ran with the column,  of Christopher sailing a small bike through Central Park with his legs  in the air, looked like something out of the Moscow Circus.”
