This photo is from Day 1 of a school-year-long project I did titled Around Atlanta in 180 Days (take a peek!). That’s when I first threw my bike, laptop, and camera in the car and started riding my bike around the cities of Decatur and Atlanta, Georgia every day because my younger daughter was going to a magnet school near there and there was no school bus.
I say I earned my “see” legs that year because I learned how to see the world as a street photographer. Since then I’ve written two books (Stranger Things Happen and Traveling at the Speed of Bike) directly related to what I experienced.
I wear my helmet correctly now. But I’m still learning how to see.
See here for links to buy my book, Traveling at the Speed of Bike, on Amazon in all global markets. I’m an indie author and your support is greatly appreciated. A portion of proceeds from the sale of all books is donated to help more women and girls ride bikes. Currently, that means funding my ability to do “Pedal Power with Pattie” Basic Bike Skills Classes for Women for free.
