Cover girl

What’s the only thing more exciting than Time Out Chicago doing an issue about cycling? Time Out Chicago doing an issue on cycling with Dottie and Oma on the cover!


The five creative bike ride ideas are focused on everything from late-night urban assault rides to doughnut shop tours (That one’s in my future the next time I’m in town.). Seeing a mainstream publication do bike-focused issue does the heart good—Chicagoans, prove that bikes on the cover sells magazines and pick one up!

    Very excellent. I believe they also did a blurb about Critical Lass in this one. Time to peruse.

  3. Simply Bike says:

    this is so awesome! dumb question: how did they get that aerial shot of you?

    • Dottie says:

      It was interesting (not a dumb question at all!). I went to the studio and there was seamless white paper set up, along with a couple of strong lights that created the shadow. I sat on my bike with the help of my kickstand. The photographer climbed up a tall ladder and shot me from above/behind.

  4. Love the aerial shot (or is it a drawing?). Congratulations on being featured!

  6. I was just sitting here looking at my issue and wondering if that was you. And I was wondering the same thing about whether it was a drawing, and how they had the aerial shot. Very cool!

    Hi Dottie, I just discovered your lovely blog a week or two ago, and now you’re already on the cover of TOC! Congrats! You also have to link to the lovely picture of you they feature on page 2. Keep up the great work.

  11. So cool! If there were such a thing as “making it” as a bicyclist or bicycling blogger, I think this would be it! I believe I saw your photo in the “Bike Fancy” slideshow on the site, too? Neat-o!
