|| April 28th of this year. ... Leading up to Red Hook Crit we found ourselves soaking up the sun at JP1. Shardy just couldn’t get enough vegan food in his system. Cali Julio was peeping some toms from his fancy new drone. Turns out those two dudes have the same birthday. Who knew. ... Meanwhile Johnny JazzMan was keeping the riffraff out of the store and Phil was keeping his head warm. Devin was just chillin while Jason sucked down water like it was Michael’s Space Jam Secret Stuff. ... Poots pulled up and I swear I can hear whatever story he was relaying just by looking at the way he’s got those hands. Then I locked eyes with this asian lady who was thoroughly unimpressed with the lot of us. ... Good times, good times. I hope Shardy got enough to eat that day.
|| Timestamp: 2:02am and frozen. ... Frozen but thoroughly loving life. The cold only felt cold when it took the feeling from my fingers crossing over the WillyB. ... It’s now 2:20am and I’m home. A block away from my place a nighttime ConEdison manhole bloke yelled out, “I’ll pedal for you.” I pulled around to say hello. He said hi. His coworker asked if I was riding fixed and I said yes. He inspected my bike and told the guy, “She’s serious. She has no brakes.” ... He asked me where I’m from. Couldn’t believe it wasn’t Brooklyn. He said the serious fixed gears he knew were all from here. Respect. ... Good to meet you miss. What’s your name? Hope to see you around. Have a great night. Then they went back to work and I went home. Smiling. ... I love New York; for the people. The real 2am people who catcall with nothing more than friendly banter and lighthearted intentions. Respect.
|| Just threw on my snow tires and am ready to tear up these streets and freeze my balls off. ... And of course in typical Heidi fashion I decided to swap tires the day after doing my nails. Can’t say that ladylike plan lasted long. ... 💁🏼♀️ ... #snowtires #continuumcycles #fixiedgear #fixiegirls #steelisreal #ladylike
|| Found me a little Brooklyn born street kitten in the Lower East Side. ... Little Paws NYC. 20 Clinton
|| Life is all about being unapologetically yourself. Even if that means rolling up to the college party on a way too small bike, looking like the total dork you are with Chacos, throwback Asics joggers and a juice jug full of a rum cocktail. ... Throwback to 2009...or maybe 2010. Bucknell.
|| Portland, Oregon here I come! ... Earlier I chowed down on some killer ramen at Minca then finished my second beer and left Kingston Hall by 6:15pm to head home and pack for the 8:59pm departure. And here I am, seated in the exit row. I’ve had some close calls but have never missed a flight. I missed a bus at Port Authority once. But never a flight. And those beers were tasty.
|| Tonight I’m hopping a flight to Oregon and can’t wait to catch up with two out of three of these cool cats. Siblings can be a total crapshoot, but I’m one lucky duck to have landed three amazingly supportive ones who keep me grounded without squashing my free-spirited nature. ... Throwback to two years ago when we froze our bums in the snow in the name of quality bonding time. ... @kampfire0107 and @mckenziebezates get a glass of cabernet sauvignon ready for my arrival. @russellkamp can’t wait to see you in a few weeks.
|| Today doesn’t mark anything significant, but for some reason I woke up feeling empowered as fuck. Coming at the tail end of a rough month this unexpected feeling of calm confidence was everything I needed. ... I like to think back to five and ten years ago to check in with where I saw myself now. There’s a lot that lines up and some that’s not quite there yet. And man...I hate when the latter leaves me feeling empty. ... To me this photo captures the essence of who I love to be. Strong, confident, motivated, determined and damn sexy. Next time that emptiness sets in I’d do well to pull this photo up and remember the bright eyed and bushy tailed tomboy from Oregon who committed to making moves in the city that either makes or breaks you is still very much alive. ... Holler if you hear me.
