Even though many of us ride the whole year round, May is officially Bike Month. Whole Foods hosted a Bike Month Kickoff at their Tribeca location last Friday, and invited me to take some bike portraits. My “booth” was just one of several attractions, which included Citi Bike sign-ups, a table for the Social Cycling NYC group, and a line of 100+ people queued up for free bike helmets from the DOT. With all that adding to the normal Tribeca foot traffic, it got a bit cozy on our patch of sidewalk, but we still had enough lovely people stop by with their bikes for a respectable little set of diverse portraits. Devoted followers of this blog will recognize Calista and her Brompton, who have appeared here before. And livable streets devotees might recognize safe streets activist Keegan Stephan, who just happened to be passing by on an errand.
