Meet Dorothy

Meet Dorothy. She is Today’s Nice Stranger (well, yesterday’s). I was a hot mess and she was ROCKING IT cool as can be in that scorching heat! I wish I got a photo of the whole outfit. She was stunning and an absolute joy with whom to chat briefly. If interested, see Today’s Nice Stranger…

Meet E.J.

Meet E.J. She is Today’s Nice Stranger. Well actually, I “met” her last week on Twitter when she commented that she wants to fit bike riding into her life. We then agreed to meet in person so I could hear about her barriers to participation and perhaps provide some suggestions to help her meet her…

Out there

Reminder — there are so many nice strangers from all walks of life out there. And it’s easy to meet them when you’re Traveling at the Speed of Bike. My crossing paths with every one of these people has a story (some in my book; most not). Maybe see if you can meet someone new…

Meet Derek

Meet Derek. He is Today’s Nice Stranger. He is a Bird scooter charger and was dropping off some freshly-charged ones when I came across him after riding a scooter myself (while my bike was locked up nearby). I’m researching something, and we got to talking. Note: He did, actually, consent to my taking this photo…

This is Solomon

This is Solomon. He is Today’s Nice Stranger. He can sell a fish fry like nobody’s business. I met him today while Traveling at the Speed of Bike.

Today’s nice strangers

During these sorry-ass days when the news seems bad absolutely all the time, I just want you to know that there is a ridiculous number of nice people out there that I meet while Traveling at the Speed of Bike. Like, constantly. They are literally everywhere. Right in front of our faces, folks. I’ve been…

Today’s nice stranger

This is Nicky. He is Today’s Nice Stranger. I met him when I was leaving my book, Traveling at the Speed of Bike, in the Little Free Library at the Midtown Atlanta MARTA transit station plaza for Free Art Friday (it’s a thing). He is from West Palm Beach, Florida, and is in Atlanta temporarily…
