Of Bicycles And Airstream Trailers, Part I

IMG_5074 IMG_5138 IMG_5139 IMG_5121 IMG_5173 IMG_5181 IMG_5189 IMG_5190 The search for a portrait setting at the Heels On Wheels ride today found this vintage Airstream trailer, the travelling home of Small Room Collective. Lauren and Travis have brought their treasures to Church Street, Decatur for the weekend. Look for them next to the Victory Sandwich Shop. The graphic on the trailer's number plate is not wishful thinking. It commemorates French racing cyclist Alfred LeTourneur, who towed an Airstream trailer at Metropolitan Airport in Van Nuys, California in 1947.

IMG_3484 IMG_3482 IMG_3490 IMG_3498 IMG_3501 IMG_20140511_165251123 The noble sentiment, Never Give Up, here realized by Living Walls muralist Eme, gains a poignant dimension this damp morning of Streets Alive. While Cyclofemme riders enjoyed clear skies last Sunday for their tour East Atlanta and Kirkwood, Peachtree Street is ours today, rain or shine. See you there!

Happy Mother's Day
