James and the little blue bike bell

21843144454_cd04200658_oThis is James. He stopped me in a bike lane to ask where I got my little blue bike bell. He said something like that could be helpful to him when he’s riding his wheelchair in bike lanes. I came back to the apartment building for low-income seniors where he lives the next day and gave him a bike bell. You can see what happened next here. This photo is included in my new exhibit, First Stop: A Selection from A Streetcar Named Aspire, Year 1. More bike bells are needed, probably at a building like this near you.
