This year, the theme is “Movement.” Speakers, artists and musicians from around the community will share their passions, talents and ideas with a diverse group of attendees.

New: Fine Art Color Prints

New in the Bikeyface store are several color 8×10″ fine art prints. All are archival and printed on 100% cotton rag paper with a matte finish. Both the paper and the color quality has a lovely watercolor feel.

The images have been taken from past posts and been updated and colorized. I hope to add more images periodically.

New- Bikeyface Store!

It’s always been easy to have a bikeyface on your bike. But now you can have a Bikeyface indoors. Introducing new Bikeyface posters, available in the new Bikeyface store:

Bikeyface 11×17 Happiness poster

Happiness

This poster was inspired by reading about the World Happiness Report. The happiest nations are also the most bikey. Is that really that surprising?

Bikeyface 18×24 Be Yourself poster

Just be yourself. On Wheels.

Because sometimes it seems many people think these two cyclists are on the road. I don’t know about you, but I see many other bicyclists out there these days. I created this poster to open everyone’s mind and invite more people to grab a bike, no spandex/skinny jeans required. 

Bikeyface Open Studio

For those in the Boston area- I’ll be having an open studio event in December where you can buy in person:

Open Studios, Vernon Street Studios
December 7th & 8th, 12-6pm
6 Vernon Street, Studio 54, Somerville MA, 02145

While there, you’ll have a chance to view my non-Bikeyface art as well as visit many other artists’ studios.

As always, thanks for reading & supporting Bikeyface!

See and be Seen

Before the holidays, I had the pleasure of working with Boston’s A Better City to on a project to promote awareness that all modes of travel share a responsibility for safety on the roads – a responsibility to See and Be Seen. Read all about it here and make sure to distribute the Bikeyface See and be Seen poster to everyone you know!

Cycle Tracks, coming soon to a city near you?

Recently I went on a little vacation- one of those hastily planned ones that involves grabbing your passport and getting out on the road. I headed for Montreal, with no knowledge of the city or research under my belt. Sometimes these are the best vacations, because they let you feel like you really “discovered” something rather than discover it in a tourist book and add it to an itinerary. What did I discover? This!

Luckily I had brought my bike a GoPro camera.

Lately, Boston and neighboring towns have been talking cycle tracks. It is in the air here, and I hope it happens! If you are in the Boston area and interested in getting in on the action, please join with the Boston Cyclists Union.

My Pannier Bag

Several folks asked about my pannier bag. It is a Linus “The Sac.” It’s a good basic canvas bag that hooks onto the rear rack. There are no frills, and I like how it is not black, or floral, and looks like a normal bag when I take it off the bike. It has a small inner pocket for a cell phone, a de-tachible shoulder strap, small handles, and magnetic closure. The attachments are nothing fancy and the rubber has pretty much scraped off from use after about 6 months. I plan to try washing it soon as it has collected some dirt and stains. The bike is a 42″ Surly Cross Check. (Linus & Surly are not sponsors.)
