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.

Wanted: Your Photos of Kids on Bikes

(Photo: Richard Masoner of Cyclelicious) Hey, we need your help again for our next slide show. This one is going to make you feel good.

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 […]

Bike Infrastructure Where You Live

This time, in honor of National Bike Month, we’re looking for pictures of bicycle infrastructure that you love. Lanes, trails, paths, signs, signals, parking, you name it — we want to see […]
