Today's City Zen Cyclist is Coburn Dukehart, pausing on her way to yoga on a cold morning.
(Ok that's a classic photojournalistic white-lie caption, it's posed of course. 'Pausing' because I said hi Coburn, thanks for meeting, this will just take a second, stand there please, click-click, done…)
Coburn bike commutes from home in the Bloomingdale 'hood to her job not far away at NPR, where she's the (first-ever) Photo Editor at NPR.org. She says she sticks to side streets, wearing normal clothes, even skirts as she proudly pointed out. Nice example of structuring your life so such urban citizen-cycling is possible.
