In a year filled with some great Bike Hugger trips and stories, a few photos stand out to me as favorites. One is this unassuming photo of Specialized’s Amber, sitting astride her Globe. When I say her Globe I mean that quite literally, she designed every single weld, angle and custom part on every Globe bike. Here she’s clearly in love with her bike, which is the whole point, isn’t it?
From racing, this is one of my favorite shots of the year. By far it’s not the most technical shot of the year, but it really captures for me what ‘Cross is all about, the mix of seriousness and mockery that’s the heart of the sport.
If you’d like to see more of the BH photos, you can check out our flickr stream, or take a look at my collections of cycling shots.
