look up any word, like hipster:

A panda portrait is a photograph you take of yourself while on a bicycle. A bicyclist holds their camera out with one arm, and takes a picture of their own face, while on their bicycle, possibly while wearing a bicycle helmet.

I think this term can also be used for videos of one's self while riding a bicycle, in motion.

It may come from the idea that pavement is black, and the bike lane stripe is white. Panda's are black and white striped, just like bike lanes. Maybe the bicyclist stencil used to paint and mark bike lanes looks somewhat like a panda.
Check out my new photos from last week's ride. I took some great panda portraits!
