A Good Deed on the Bike Mapped

Followed this cyclist in street view and saw he did a good deed helping another cyclist change a flat, as proper etiquette dictates. The act was captured by the Google Maps car. I first noticed the cyclist when writing a post about cobblestoned streets in Seattle.

A screen recording of Street View

He was at the base of Blanchard and a few frames up and down the hill. Screenshot it. Then a reader commented that he followed the cyclist another block and saw him stop to help with a flat. That’s something us cyclists do, good karma, but unique that the Map Car was right there.

Drag the street view icon to the photo on the map and then follow the cyclist yourself.

Cool, huh? Some chance grooviness.

My daily shooter is Sony a9 with a vertical grip and various Sigma lenses attached like the 14mm 1.4 Art. Find more recommendations on our store page.
