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.
