Harsh Vahalia


An eerie August fog was setting in over downtown Boston when Harsh and I were scheduled to meet for our photo shoot. We discussed canceling, but I’m glad we didn’t because the fog added a nice effect to the photos. Harsh and I became acquainted through working on bike advocacy projects around Boston. Recently he has been active in the group Southie Bikes in their ongoing campaign to bring bike lanes to West Broadway in South Boston. Read the rest of this entry »

In honor of August being the month when many people go on vacation, and when those of us still around like to pretend we are on vacation, Cycle Style Boston is taking you abroad. Having already taken you to the bustling streets of Buenos Aires, we now head east. Last July I had the privilege of travelling to Tanzania for a family wedding. We stayed in the city of Moshi, near the famous Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain.

Here are a few highlights. Read the rest of this entry »
