I Love Riding in the City
LOCATION: Philadelphia, PA
OCCUPATION: Store Manager / Non-profit organizer
Where do you live and what’s it like riding in your city?
Philadelphia PA. Where every day feels like it could be your last... Seriously! We have some of the oldest streets in the country, thus some of the oldest (if not biggest and scariest) potholes. Not to mention trolley tracks that terrify and most peoples “outta my way, me first” mentality, coupled with the “Oh! I didn’t see you there... I wasn’t paying attention because I’m more important” vibe.
What was your favorite city to ride in, and why?
Berlin! Haven’t traveled much, and it was the only timed I biked on another continent. The graffiti was awesome!
Why do you love riding in the city?
The excitement, the adrenaline... You have to have eyes in the back, front, top and bottom of your head to there. It’s like a video game, a test of faith and a challenge of will rolled into one.
Or just say whatever you want about riding in the city… Poetry anyone?
I whip mint condition Nike’s and ride a bike
