Commuter Conversations Over Coffee: “My Bike Photographers”

Zoom in with a cup of coffee and hang out with the first three photographers of this year’s “My Bike Photo Series”.

Whether biking to commute, get food, to get healthy, or for recreation, biking is an important part of our culture. Dsto Moore, Curtis Hertwig, and Chris Smith give us a vision of what bikes mean to people in Macon. If you have been a model so far, we encourage you to join us to share your experience with the “My Bike Photo Series.” More information.

My Bike Macon Photo Series

The “My Bike Macon project” is an ongoing series of portraits and profiles of Maconites who use a bicycle to get around for more than just recreation. These photos highlight people who bike to get to work or school, or bike to run errands, or bike to improve their health. Together, these images and stories begin to form a portrait of Macon as an emerging bicycling city. This project is launched by Bike Walk Macon and photographer Dsto Moore to help celebrate Bike Walk Month, but it will continue to highlight different photographers and bicycle commuters every month.

Virtual Macon Bike Party

It’s all about social distancing and coping with staying at home. Take a nice leisurely bike ride and post a video of your personal bike party in this facebook event. In your video, tell us why biking is important to you, your family, your kids, or your community. Ride fun, safe, and solo (or with your pandemic partners) in your yard or neighborhood, but please keep your distance by staying more than 6 feet away from others and remember to wash your hands.
