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 »
Nivia is co-owner of the popular and long-running Roxbury restaurant Merengue. With her husband Héctor, they’ve been serving up delicious Dominican favorites since opening in 1994. This past Sunday was Circle the City’s Open Streets Open World on Blue Hill Avenue, and the entire street was closed off to motorized traffic for the enjoyment of the community. Nivia was kind enough to let me take her photo with her blue Electra cruiser. I asked if she rides a lot. “Not as often as I would like” she replied before riding off down a car-free Blue Hill Ave with Héctor. Later, as motor vehicles were allowed back onto to the street and a steady stream of cars and trucks sped by, I understood why.
Ride on, Nivia!
A few weeks ago I learned through social media that my friend and neighbor Zion had acquired a new bike. I was excited to see a new Boston city cyclist in the making, and glad that he wanted to meet up for a photo shoot to show off his new ride. Zion is no stranger to being featured on blogs; earlier this year he was profiled in a post for The Gay Men Project. By day, Zion works for the American Red Cross as a Problem Investigator. He’s been there 11 years and loves his job: “Nothing is more pleasing than knowing that you are responsible for ensuring safe blood products are being distributed to a person thats in need.”
