I have two favorite photo categories from Amsterdamize’s photostream*: the first is people riding side saddle as passengers on someone else’s bike and “borrowing” someone else’s energy. It’s borrowing because they’ll eventually return the favor, to the original lender, or to a friend of their own.
The second, and the one that is more important, is photos of older people riding bikes.
These photos, and the older folks’ running errands on their bikes, help make cycling look like the most normal and sensible thing that anyone could be doing right now. And that’s what my goal is for my city.
*Amsterdamize is Marc van Woudenberg, an Amsterdammer (you know, from The Netherlands?).
