Readers of this blog may remember my earlier feature on Bekka Wright, the artist and creative force behind the witty, imaginative and popular blog Bikeyface. Earlier this year, my friends over at Momentum Mag got in touch about doing a photo shoot for their BikeStyle series featuring Bekka. The premise? To show Bekka with a drawing of her character, the protagonist of the Bikeyface cartoons. This photo appears in the current issue of Momentum Mag, currently on the shelves. Go pick up your copy today! Here are a few outtakes from the shoot. Read the rest of this entry »
I had the pleasure of meeting Megan several years ago while I was working at a store selling high-end second hand clothing. She would come in, bike helmet in tow, throughout the year, rain or shine. I remember asking her a lot of questions and seeking advice, especially on rainy days. Seeing her riding year round was part of what inspired me to start taking cycling more seriously as a way to get around the city. She is one of the few people I know who can pull off an effortless style while riding a bike almost every day of the year. Read the rest of this entry »

By day, James Derek Dwyer works as a media specialist at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. By night, he DJ’s Plastique at the Midway Cafe in Jamaica Plain. Oh, and he is indie filmmaker Todd Verow’s writing and producing partner at Bangor Films. James also happens to be a friend of mine, and when we bumped into each other on the Southwest Corridor recently I wasn’t letting him get away without a photo.
James rides an REI Big Buzz in the city, and a Specialized HardRock mountain bike when visiting back home in Cape Cod. His favorite thing about cycling in Boston is it’s efficiency: “I love how quickly I can get around the city on my bike, and since I have decided to never own a car, it’s perfect transportation for me. I’ve never even gotten a driver’s license”

Ride on, James!
What better way to ring in Cycle Style Boston’s inaugural post than with the fabulous and talented artist Maria Molteni (check out her work here and here). Maria, seen here outside her South Boston studio building, where her neighbors include Geekhouse Bikes, rides a vintage Fuji Sagres she found in her parent’s basement back home in Nashville. Says Maria, “I went home for a holiday and saw it … and was like ‘what? this is like a car to me! I’m taking this back to Boston!’ I think it was my mom’s at one point”. Read the rest of this entry »
