George Hahn: How to Ride Your Bike Like a Gentleman (or a Lady)

Actor. Writer. Minor social media legend. Gentleman cyclist.

This week, Streetfilms tagged along with actor George Hahn for a very special episode: “How to Ride Like a Gentleman.”

In this film, we explore the city with Hahn and learn these valuable tips:

“Don’t ride like a dick.” Don’t roll through crosswalks or frighten pedestrians. There’s no reason for that. “It’s just rude,” he says.
Don’t ride your bicycle on the sidewalk.
Don’t ride against traffic. “It’s dangerous…and rude to everyone,” Hahn says.
Don’t buy special clothes. (Hahn has ridden in a tuxedo, but you knew that.)

Of course, Hahn is courteous to make a point: there is a larger danger on our streets. Watching an SUV driver rudely inch into a crosswalk, Hahn observes the most important rule of the road: “Your destination is no more important than anyone else’s,” he says.

This is a fun video. Some etiquette. Some style. Some advocacy. But all fun!

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:

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?
