Almost skewered

Honestly, I almost didn’t buy this thing because I was completely intimidated by the nebulous directions to remove my bike’s skewer and replace it with the one that comes in the box before attaching the new bike trainer. Wouldn’t my gears just fall apart? I didn’t know. This was new to me. I had already…

LinkedIn’s stunning campaign

LinkedIn is running a stunning campaign in transit locations right now that I keep passing while Traveling at the Speed of Bike around the City of Atlanta. There are a bunch of ads featuring diverse people with a variety of professional goals. I still have to research this, but my guess is that the brand marketing…

FREE class (SOLD OUT)

Remember how much fun it used to be to ride your bike? Wanna get back out there and feel that freedom again, or thinking about biking to school with your kids, bike-commuting to work (even if it’s just for the final mile or so), running errands, using bikeshare when you travel or around the City…

“Heartbreak,” one of my fellow orientation attendees offered, as we were brainstorming the reasons people are homeless. It stopped the room cold. This was before the tour that took us past the old jail cells (with a metal bunk bed, tiny toilet, small sink, little mirror, and a curtain for a door) now used as…

In perfect harmony

La, la, la. I had the roads practically to myself on Saturday morning in Downtown Atlanta. I got a text from one of my fave riding buddies later that day that Belty (the Eastside Trail part) was unrideable (even in the cold) due to its popularity. This photo is two miles away from that. It…

Bodies merge and meld

I have reason to be in downtown Atlanta, just killing time, for two hours once a week for the first eight months of 2018. This past week, I hopped on the Atlanta Streetcar, yet again, to shoot photos for my longitudinal photo essay, A Streetcar Named Aspire (there are almost 1,000 photos in that file now…
