Summer Bike Sampler: Part 2 of 2

We’re back with Part 2 of the Summer Bike Sampler. All the bikes that follow were seen out and about in the Washington, D.C., area. One day this summer I ventured over to Hains Point and encountered #BikeDC’s Brook and Ted out enjoying some laps in the late afternoon sun. […]

Summer Bikes Sampler: Part 1 of 2

Summer winds down, Congress filters back into town, and kids return to school. I thought I’d take advantage of this in-between time to share some of the bicycles I had the pleasure of encountering over the past three months or so. Some were seen on commutes around Washington, D.C., others […]

Love at First Bike at Le Cirque du Cyclisme

Felkerino and I capped off our weekend with a trip to Le Cirque du Cyclisme, a vintage and handbuilt bike show in Leesburg, Virginia. The show featured bikes throughout the decades, from steeds made in the 1940s to modern handmade steel frames. I perused the frames as though I was […]

Bikes to Like: Lauren K.’s Dahon Speed D7

Welcome to March, my favorite month of the year. What better way to kick it off than with another Bikes to Like? Yippee! Lauren, a D.C. bike commuter and regular member of the #FridayCoffeeClub, rides around the city on small wheels. I haven’t seen too many small wheeled commuters out […]

Bikes To Like: Pedro Gringo’s Surly Troll

Avid cyclist and stalwart commuter Pedro Gringo is one of my favorite people from the flickrverse. I regularly check in on his two-wheeled activities, which range from power naps and puppy rescues to mountain biking and gear tests. When I saw his fat bike (see how hip I am saying […]

Bikes to Like: Dan’s 1987 Trek 330 Elance

I recently met Dan during a lunch stop on a 200K permanent that Felkerino and I were doing. Dan was riding a populaire with some friends out of Frederick, Maryland, and his group had stopped for lunch at the same establishment. Everyone had placed their bikes wherever space allowed alongside […]

Bikes to Like: Dan B.’s P-38 Recumbent

It’s time for more Bikes to Like, and you know what’s not been getting any love in this series? The recumbent! To remedy that situation, I called on one of my favorite recument riders, Pittsburgh-based randonneur Dan B. If you’ve ever met Dan, you know that he is one strong […]

Bikes to Like: Christian M.’s Terraferma

This year I had the pleasure of meeting Christian, who completed his first Super Randonneur series in 2011. I came to know Christian through his bicycle. There was something about the creamy orange paint that caught my eye; it looked like a delicious orange pushup. Intrigued by the bike’s careful […]

Bikes to Like: Kevin T.’s Rivendell Atlantis

Since we’ve been on the subject of randonneurs and coffeeneurs in Alaska, I thought I’d start out the week with a long overdue Bikes to Like, featuring my flickr friend and RBA of the Alaska Randonneurs, Kevin Turinsky. What kind of bike does this Alaska randonneur choose for the varied […]
