Jon Woodroof has been a long distance friend, and fellow ‘bird of a feather’ for a very long time now. Since I first started visiting his Atlanta bike shop, ‘No Brakes’, about 10 years ago on trips to Atlanta to visit my dad and his family. Despite eventually evolving above and beyond the limits of the Atlanta cycling scene, and the bike shop ownership world, Jon and his wife have become some of my life inspirations for moving abroad and continuing to evolve in the world through love and appreciation for the world around them. If you’ve been following Jon for a while through social channels, you’ve seen his life evolve, you’ve seen his amazing kids grow up on and around two wheels, in the front of his cargo bike, and him and his family truly living the dream in Amsterdam.
If you haven’t been following him along with his business ‘TwoTone‘, you really have to!!!
Jon’s life and drive has been at the tip of my brain for years now, as a true inspiration. As someone I appreciate and respect deeply, it’s been an absolute honor to grow along side Jon, with such similar parallels, even though we’re literally a world apart.
There’s no better feeling than truly finding your people. If it wasn’t for cycling, and now the internet, it’s sad to think that I’d never have met friends like Jon and so many other amazing people that I’m lucky enough to call my tribe. My people.
Here’s Jon’s first disposable camera series on No Life!!
misfire but good start to the roll

The Glienicke Bridge is a bridge across the Havel River in Germany, connecting the Wannsee district of Berlin with the Brandenburg capital Potsdam. It is named after nearby Glienicke Palace. It, however, is known was one of the most renowned monuments of the Cold War up to the fall of the Berlin Wall. It was a point of exchange for secret agents of both political systems who had been taken prisoner. Read more about Berlin’s real Bridge of Spies.
