It certainly made my day. Until I realized it was you, I was a tad nervous about being so obvious about taking the photo. It looked like you were having a fun ride.
The girl on the folding bike is also an occasional boarder – i’ll send her the link.
Cool, it’s me
Cold weather cyclist out about noon today. Photo on William Penn Way, approaching Sixth Avenue
@sprite – cool, you are the first person I photographed who actually was a participant in this board. Or at least the first one that I knew of….
There were a ton of cyclists out this morning in downtown. I caught a few on my phone camera.
(The last one was from a few nights ago. The rest were from this morning.)
wish I’d gotten a picture of the badass old dude in office-type clothing who I saw climbing liberty today. Made me feel lazy as I walked up the hill…
Here are a few more from recent days:
I think I got this guy the other day, too:
Notice the two riders behind this guy?
Got them too! They waved!
Nice to catch the cyclist riding illegally in the bus lane….
And on downtown sidewalks
Bridge crossing on the sidewalk is legal — at least it is on the OTHER sidewalk
Cyclists sometimes take interesting routes. This guy was headed to the Shared Use Sidewalk at Station Square, from the trail.
These guys were looking to stay ON the trail, I think.
I’ll post a few more later.
That station square connection is so confusing. I never really know where to go. I stay on the sidewalk until the crosswalk near the valet now.
Wow, nice work Sara!
Just doing a dump of other photos from my phone. Seen around town, in no particular order were:
This was a bike cop on Fifth Avenue
This one’s a little too far away, but I thought I’d share it anyway.
rsprake – agreed, although i’d call it “abysmal” rather than just “confusing”, because it’s still convoluted and dangerous long after the confusion is gone.
I was organizing my flickr account and found a photo that I had not yet posted. This is from a while ago…
The City has been crazy with bikes the past few days:
PediCabs count, don’t they?
Missed a shot of another Pedicab, but caught a cyclist near the Convention Center:
Hard to tell from this shot, but this guy was wearing camo pants — just outside the NRA convention. I think it was coincidental:
Suburban rider, enjoying a beautiful saturday:
I think this was the only cyclist I saw downtown on Sunday.
a shame, sundays are beautiful days for riding downtown, in my experiences.
Recent interesting sightings (sorry, no photos).
-Person in a full-length black burqa riding a primary-colors Y-style mtn bike.
-Middle-school-aged kid passing me on the outbound forbes ave downhill: all entirely while doing a wheelie on his bmx and rather elegantly braking with the heel of his sneaker.
A few more from around town:
This guy was hauling ice at Station Square:
Taking photos of cyclists is hard because my phone is so slow. I had the good fortune to capture this guy in the frame before I even fully realized he was there:
This rider was heading SB towards the Smithfield Street Bridge. Not a great photo, but wanted to document the female rider.
Here are a few more from recent weeks.
(left the bike somewhere else, but noticed the pedals were in the helmet…..)
I still have a few more to post. Just didn’t want to jam up the site by posting too many in a single post.
Here are more.
The camera on my phone is so slow that I need to start keeping all the photos of cyclists who are no longer visible in the frame. But perhaps that humor is best saved for just myself…..
