Bikes not dead 2: Gnarly.

Here are 3 more from my 1.5 year hiatus - much more gnar this time:

First noticed bikes of the summer.

Bikes not dead 1: The Dutch.

How has it been over a year and a half since I've posted? I definitely didn't stop taking pictures. I'll do a couple of roundups before resuming for real (sorry guys. If anybody even reads this.). Here are the Dutch style, curvy bikes I've seen since October 2011:

Peach bike!

Baby blue at cold dusk

My bus was rerouted this afternoon because of some street fair, and I had to walk home a different way. What happened then was this --

Thank you for re-routing my bus and making me walk by this, MTA.

Isn't that beautiful? The cold with leaves crunching underfoot and the day turning to dusk made this blue piercing, and not just visually (not sure how to explain). It looks like a Globe Roll but I can't be sure. All I'm sure of is that I've gone back and re-looked at this picture a few times tonight, which hasn't happened with a bike photo in a long while.

I saw this pretty green bike in a neighborhood I don't visit nearly as much as I should. After buying a computer battery, and before going to a fun Saturday of drawing trains and drinking cocktails.


The last day of summer was last Thursday. Inevitably, posting will slow a bit in the fall and winter. I'll try my very best to be extra bikevigilant.

Bicycle Film Festival: Street Party

Saturday was full of riding around NYC. After riding to a friend's art exhibit in Bushwick, we rode over the Williamsburg Bridge and into the East Village for the Bicycle Film Festival's block party. It was full of vendors, food, BMX tricks, some great short films, and of course, bikes.

White forks

There was a bike valet, which was great for a multicolored tangle of frames; an actual penny farthing; and the license to eat pizza, after riding so many miles ;)

The day was exhausting and fulfilling and hot and delicious. Perfect summer.

A bright end to a fryup

I traveled to a faraway place to have this (amazing) English breakfast yesterday:

And saw this when I walked outside...

There was no good angle for this shot.

There was no great angle from which to take that, but I'm sure you can see it was stunning. The most accurate yellow in this picture to how brilliant this bike was is on the top tube, toward the seat. Went so, so well with those hot pink grips.

Pink Peugeot

I was walking around with my friend Mike after brunch a few weekends ago; I'm sure you can imagine why this bike caught my eye:

That's a bike for summer.

Look at the little pink orange and yellow diagonal stripes on the seat tube. So sunny.
