National Bike Summit 2015: Talking “Bikes Plus”

The theme of this year's National Bike Summit in Washington, DC, is "Bikes+" or, as the League of American Bicyclists puts it, "how bikes can add value to other movements and how our movement can expand to serve broader interests." We decided to have some fun with the theme and ask attendees what they would add to that equation and why.

The answers were quite eclectic and showcase just how broad the topic of bicycling can be. Bikes+ is getting us psyched for a great year of advocacy!

Streetfilms Stylin’ in Momentum Magazine

In May, I was invited to participate in a fashion shoot for Momentum Magazine, Issue #62. That faboulous issue is now for sale and features the above centerfold photo (shot by Derin Thorpe). It's a beauty and features a diverse group of New York City cyclists in cool threads,  including NYC DOT Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan!

To see lots of individual shots, check out the 2013 Be Chic BE NY Look Book available here.

In addition, there is some fun video of the event. I think my favorite moment has to be around the 1:10 mark for George Hahn's catwalk. Check out the clip courtesy of Bancha Srikacha:

Amazingly this is Streetfilms second issue in a row making an apparence in Momentum. There are many great articles from issue #61 I invite you to sample.  They include:

The Five Essential Streetfilms to watch for First Time Visitors

A Comprehensive Profile of Mark Gorton, the major funder of Streetsblog & Streetfilms.

Streetsblog Expands Coverage to Chicago

And finally, although we were stylin' nicely here, there was some real Cycle Chic going on during my Netherlands junket in Groningen where this posse of cyclists went by looking as debonair as can be.  Maybe one day I will look like that. A fashion-model-for-a-day can always dream, right?
