From the artist, Derek Byrd:

I grew up in Seattle, WA and have lived in Philadelphia for 5 years. I’ve been a cyclist since childhood, and spent most of my free time as a kid mountain biking and riding BMX. I currently work as the Lead Mechanic at Indego Bikeshare and produce artwork and comics through my publishing company Planet Mopy Productions. Bicycle advocacy is crucial to creating a safer, healthier and more equitable Philadelphia; but most importantly: Bikes are fun and cool! I can be found at:

Author

After graduating from Swarthmore College, Ashley moved to Philadelphia to work in nonprofit development and communications as a Philly Fellow. She was introduced to the Bicycle Coalition’s work in her first week of the fellowship through an Urban Riding Basics class. She did not take up bicycling in the city until getting involved with the Women Bike PHL community, which catalyzed her to shed her fear of riding in traffic and get on a bike. Ashley’s bike has served as a powerful tool, and she is excited to share the healing and empowering nature of bicycling with others. You can find Ashley riding her blue Breezer to the Headhouse farmer’s market, or her Fuji Sportif when she’s road racing as an alum of the Women Bike PHL Racing Development program.
