Susi Wunsch’s Photo Contest Entry

Part of the joy of cycling in New York City, and of writing about it, is connecting with others who love to ride and hearing their stories. I recently struck up a conversation with Stephanie, a student and bicycle messenger, when I noticed her vintage Raleigh parked inside the shop where she works. As a tribute to her dad, a first responder on 9/11, Stephanie painted her bike fire-engine red and affixed his helmet and engine company numbers to the frame. I like the strength and individual style reflected in this photo, which we shot in front of a Greenwich Village fire house for an upcoming post.
