Calling for Your Photos of Work Bikes

There’s still time to submit photos for our next slide show. We’re
looking for pictures of bikes at work — hauling, delivering, getting
the job done. International submissions are definitely welcome.

The
shot below, showing the Santa Cruz candy man on his way to hawk his
wares on the boardwalk, captures the spirit perfectly. It comes from
Richard Masoner, the author of Streetsblog Network member Cyclelicious.

A couple of specific items on our wish list: messengers, pedicabs and food delivery. The ordinary stuff, you know?

In case you didn’t get a chance to see our two earlier slide shows, check them out. One is on bike traffic (that beautiful thing), the other on cars and trucks hogging space that could be used by people.

Send your pics to me at sarah [at] streetsblog [dot] org, or tag them with "streetsblog" and "workbike" in Flickr.

We want to put up the results on Friday, so get your pics in by Thursday morning if you can.

And thank you.

Transit in Trouble Where You Live

|
Let’s get one thing straight right off the bat: We love transit. Love love love. But that’s why we hate it so much when transit infrastructure and transit riders are neglected. And they are. The nation’s buses and trains and light rail are too often underfunded, dismissed, vandalized and disrespected. Transit riders deserve better. We […]

Wanted: Your Photos of Crummy Transit Conditions

Waiting to board the B44 in Brooklyn. Photo: Benjamin Fried Our latest call for photos was inspired by the picture at right, taking by Streetsblog New York’s own Ben Fried. It’s an all too familiar scene — transit riders crammed together, waiting for a bus (or train) that doesn’t come when it’s supposed to (if […]

Your Eyes on Your Streets: Space Hogs

|
Our first user-generated slide show, on bike traffic, was a lot of fun. (See it here.) This time out, we’re looking for pictures that show cars — the most inefficient form of transportation — hogging public space. Reader Evan Goldin has already sent along a few, including the image at right, which he snapped with […]

Bikes at Work Where You Live, Part 1

|
Wow. Our call for pictures of work bikes elicited such an overwhelming response — more than 300 photos — that we almost didn’t know where to begin. It’s truly inspirational and delightful to see how people around the world use bicycles for work (and in some cases to haul some serious gear for play). There […]
