I have a new blog love: Atlanta Bicycle Chic!
This is a fabulous blog filled with original photography of stylish cyclists around Atlanta. Such a high-quality blog focused on bicycle street style with posed portraits is a rare gem (the only other that comes to mind is Chicago’s Bike Fancy). If you’re not already familiar, you should check it out immediately!
Looking through the archives really makes me want to visit and ride around Atlanta!
Atlanta Bicycle Chic is an off-shoot of the style blog Atlanta Street Fashion, both by photographer Cameron Adams. I had a quick email chat with Cameron to learn more about his blog and Atlanta bicycling.
What made you decide to start a blog dedicated to Atlanta bicycle fashion?
Great looks are everywhere and bikes make stylish accessories. The convergence of street fashions and city cycling is a global trend and one worthy of its own forum, so I started Atlanta Bicycle Chic.
I think of Atlanta as a car-centric, traffic-heavy city. What is the bicycling scene like?
Yes, Atlanta is a car-centric town, but bike commuters are daily shaping the future. One leading the way is Rebecca Serna of the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition and organizer of our Heels on Wheels. ABC also organizes group rides like the BeltLine (Atlanta’s rails-to-trails project) Tour and has participated in a mass ride to the state capitol campus in support of the three foot law. Progressive politicians like Kwanza Hall keep our infrastructure needs at the forefront of the city’s legislative agenda.
You often feature photos from the Heels on Wheels ride. Could you tell how readers in the Atlanta area could join?
Interested? Look to their facebook page. The ladies meet on first Saturdays spring, summer and fall for leisurely rides on Peachtree Street for fun and fellowship.
What is your personal history with bicycling?
