Brevets, commutes, tandem rides, coffee. Sometimes a marathon. Washington, D.C.

Reverse Tandem Double Panda Shot

Previously I wrote about “panda portraits,” which are typically self-portraits you take while riding your bicycle. This past summer, though, Felkerino and I worked on taking photos of each other while we were riding the same bicycle. See?

She used cakelove cupcakes. I love how she describes cupcakes as “a frosting transportation device.” She has a […]
