I Love Riding in the City

NAME: Nona Varnado

LOCATION: New York City, NY

OCCUPATION: Bike Fashion Designer

Where do you live and what’s it like riding in your city?

I live in Brooklyn, work in Manhattan and ride every kind of bike that I can get. I’ve raced alleycats, road and cyclocross, but love commuting around the city.

What was your favorite city to ride in, and why?

It used to be NYC, but things are a mixed bag as the city evolves its biking culture. Berlin is always wicked fun, Budapest was insane and awesome for a few years when I lived there and I’ve loved riding in the Bay Area and I recently discovered LA has a lot of good city riding if you know the right people to follow around!

Why do you love riding in the city?

I do love playing in traffic, being aggressive when I need to move fast or being the pretty girl on a bike that stops traffic.

Or just say whatever you want about riding in the city… Poetry anyone?

To know me is to love riding in the city, it’s fundamental to who I am. Poetry escapes me, but if there’s an option for a sculpture project, I could manage.
