Great cycling advise from one of my favorites of all time!
Carl the grounds keeper himself! This is big….
Didn’t expect to run into critical mass!
All this great Premature spring weather seems to have caused the West Side Bikeway to become a cyclists nightmare. I went out for a short ride yesterday afternoon with a friend and was not having fun at all.
The bikeway was just one big mess!
Just to give you an idea here’s a photo of the park my son refused to go into because it was just to crowed…
Massive amounts of people walking ,running, sightseeing , riding with dogs, large groups riding and running, four 4 abreast,accidentS,electric scooters ,skateboarders ,bloodied riders on the side on the road.
All these groups need to be split up! Skateborders,and people riding with dogs need to be ticketed People walking need to be asked to walk on the walking path right next to the bikeway!
There are alternate streets for downtown you can exit at 14th st and take the nice quiet bikeway on Washington St.
Greenwich street will take you uptown starting at canal!
I was so annoyed I didn’t take any photos except when I hooked up with Joao…..
Today my neighborhood has the pleasure of hosting the end of the NYC Half Marathon!!!
Can’t they do this these gigantic events in some wide open space in Jersey?
A special note…..for the family’s that are teaching children to ride or skate .…..A JAMMED PACKED BIKEWAY IS JUST NOT THE IDEAL PLACE FOR THIS!
Ill be very happy when the temp drops!
Lots of people envision Martha’s Vineyard to be just like The Hamptons or Jersey Shore.That’s just not the case!

“Backing into Forward” includes a chapter devoted to Mr. Feiffer’s introduction to summer on Martha’s Vineyard. Finding it a welcome relief from Long Island, he purchased a home here and continues to treasure his seasonal respite from New York City. “The Vineyard is the place I’ve lived, vacationed, and worked most happily,” he says. “When the weather is nice I write outside under a tree in an Adirondack chair. And when I stare into space, it’s comforting to think ‘I own it.'”As for retirement, Mr. Feiffer shrugs it off. “I’ve been retired all my life,” he quips, adding, in a more serious tone: “I was fortunate enough to walk into doing work I love, the way I want to do it, over the years getting away with murder. It didn’t make me rich but it made me famous. I’m happy to move from one area of endeavor to another.”

A self-portrait in a fantasy mode. Shelly is still figuring out how to build a side-by-side bicycle to accommodate my altered self.
I spend considerable time on the Greenway. I commute on it six days a week and have photographed it often. This nine part series was done in 1997 and this series evolved into a project that I call A/SYMMETRICALS. Many images from this project depict scenes along the Hudson River, the self portrait among them, and I will send more to Shelly from time to time.
My wife and I were walking in the park last Sunday, Riverside Park along the Hudson, and I spied a wheeled contraption that in fact was a reclining bicycle for two on steroids. Standing nearby a figure I thought I recognized. As I approached I saw a face with the trademark smile and knew it was an old acquaintance Shelly the Recumbent guy who used to service my bike many years ago when he ran a bike shop in Chelsea. Over the years we occasionally pass each other and wave going in opposite directions along the Greenway.

Could “Shweebing” Be the Next Hit in Urban Transportation?
As a tourist attraction in New Zealand’s north island, the Shweeb is proving to be a hit. It’s a combination of monorail and recumbent bicycle technology and in its current form it’s designed for fun.
This is amazing click this link………………………………………

An especially poignant one from September 11th, 2001:
It was great to be out in a different part of the city.The scene at Washington sq Park is always lots of fun.Here’s a taste of a really delicious urban paradise tucked away in New York City’s, West Village.
