Your Guide: Tamon George

@tamon_

We partnered up with photographer Tamon George to bring you a bike tour of our nation's capitol. Here's what he has to say about this city:

Hey all. Tamon here taking you through Washington, D.C. via my lens. I moved to D.C. from Western Canada in 2013. I came for grad school, for love, and for life, and I'm happy to call D.C. my home. In three short years the city has changed before my eyes - some say for good, others say for bad - some are just happy to be along for the ride.

1. Malcolm X Park

Brooklyn Bicycle Co. Wythe

My favorite spot in D.C. for shooting subjects is Malcom X Park, with its abundant textures and feels. This area is a photographers paradise.

 

2. Union Market

Mr. Brainwash

Bringing together over 40 vendors, DC's Union Market is the center for culinary treats, art and cultural exchange. On my latest visit I was able to catch the ephemeral artwork of @mrbrainwash, decorating the side of the market.

 

3. Bistro Boheme 

One of my favorite places to get brunch is Bistro Bohem. I love this place so much, it was my pre-wedding brunch spot with my groomsmen. 

 

4. H-Street

I pop by H-street for some quick eats or my usual spot, Maketto 1351. H-Street, one of the last remaining spaces for all races, cultures, and people in this city makes it a home for all things creative. It's not so much one particular restaurant or bar that makes H-street unique, it's the unique vibe. 

 

5. Shaw

Any visit to DC should include a stop in the Shaw Neighborhood. I recommend a new restaurant which is quickly becoming a favorite of my: The Royal.

 

6. Locale Workspace

This unique co-working space for entrepreneurs is the perfect place for collaboration and connecting to other creatives. Locale is the heart of DC.

 

7. Jimmy T's 

A close walk from My office is Jimmy T's which serves straightforward and delicious food.

City Bike Helmet by Thousand
Frances (Belmont, US)
Scooter Perfect

I bought this for my scooter-loving boyfriend. The look and function is PERFECT for scooter use. The snap allows quick-on-off for the urban transit connections and zipping to meetings in the city. The brim is just enough to prevent glare while still keeping the helmet compact for errands and trips to the grocery store. And did I mention that he LOVES the look of it? He said it distinguishes him from the bike crowd in a very smart way.....Still kicking it at 60!

Thanks so much for sharing Frances. We're glad you're finding many uses for the helmet. -Ryan Zagata

Nantucket Lightship Basket

Love it!

The perfect size and just what I was looking for. The shape of this basket stores my things securely and has a lot of room inside.

Thanks for sharing Lindsay. We're big fans of Nantucket Baskets as well. -Ryan Zagata

Bedford 8 Speed
Raphael Roos (Spicer, US)
Ride in style

In a sea of boring bikes, I found Brooklyn bike, and I couldn’t be more happier with my Bedford. The city ride is so smooth, and can’t help but notice the heads turning when I ride by :)

Thanks so much for sharing Raphael. We're thrilled you're enjoying your Bedford. -Ryan Zagata

Swept Back Handlebars
Blake Hebold (Falmouth, US)
Great Handlebars!

As a young bike mechanic I don’t have preferred bike component retailers. But these are perfect bars for cruiser vibe bikes. Everything (grips, brake levers etc) fit according to measurements. Great product, highly recommend it!

Thanks so much for the kind words and acknowledgment Blake. -Ryan Zagata
