Bike Portraits: Hamish

We’re starting a new series of posts this summer: bike portraits to celebrate the cyclists of Dumfries in all their wonderful variety. Thanks to those who stopped to take their photo taken – we’ll be adding more portraits gradually over the next few weeks. Look out for us haunting the cycle paths as we accost passing bikes and do please stop for a chat and to have your photo taken!

Hamish trackstanding

Trackstanding … it’s harder than it looks!

We spotted Hamish’s bike before we spotted him – there aren’t many fixies in Dumfries! It’s an old track bike repurposed for the road. Hamish even volunteered to be photographed demonstrating his trackstand, for extra credibility points (rumour has it he has a unicycle too). Hamish’s message to the people of Dumfries? ‘Cycle more!’ – we couldn’t agree more…
