Great Cycling Films….if you just won't Ride!

 With a freezing cold weather forecast in store for the weekend I can recommend a few good cycling films…

 The Triplets of Belleville was a great surprise!

Sylvain Chomet’s The Triplets of Belleville revolves around a determined grandmother and her equally determined dog, who’ll do whatever it takes to rescue the lady’s grandson, kidnapped during the Tour de France. This quirky animated feature is reminiscent of Jacques Tati’s comedies

Good for kids Too!
One of the best cycling films ever made!
Also Great for Kids..we’re expecting a copy from Netflix any day!
The 40 Year Old Virgin
 Very Funny 
Not for the Kids

LONE WOLF – Hudson River Bikeway, NYC

At 23 degrees and 30mph winds didn’t see too many cyclists out but I ran into this fella,
Sasha. On his way to Brooklyn over the Brooklyn Bridge.
Not only is he going he’s also gonna ride home tonight when he temps will drop into the Teens!
Seems pretty well geared up and having a good time chatting with me!

I dubbed him The Lone Wolf and just as I took the photo another cyclist rode right by us!

This guy could not believe I rode my skinny ass tires in the snow !

It was a pretty smooth ride but the first time I hit the brakes.
we skided out.No big deal I just put my feet out to stay upright!

The Bikeway was unexpectedly turned into a Winter Wonderland for a few hours.
Glad I got to ride. Its really pretty comfy in there.I could not believe how many cyclists were out this morning.

Amazing grace a true cyclist so SMOOTH. Great looking TOGA racing gear and a beautiful Colnogo Road Bike!
Just out for a spin on his way home from work to Staten Island.Cycling after work is real freedom that most other types of commuters just don’t know about.

Freekin Bikes!

I noticed a recumbent locked up at W 36th st. I always wondered who the owner could be.Today as I started my ride home I saw him go by. I rode up as he was locking his bike. We spent a few minuets marveling at each others bike.Then he asked if I had ever heard of Freek’n Bikes?
 He told me that its a group that works with kids in Brooklyn and they need a new home.I told him I would post it here it is for you to read and maybe give them some help!
They have given over Four Hundred bikes to needy kids!

Brooklyn Gina!
Hope you find this blog….

This morning I saw what looked like a Fixie Couple from Brooklyn, 
plowin up the Bikeway,YO!
She was right on his wheel, Cool Fixies?, Cool gear and Bags.
As I rode up to them I asked, Are you together? (I know sounds more like something you ask in a club.)
 No………He was just doing a good pace! So I told her all about what I was doing.She was good enough to
“S l o w” …. it down and give me her spin.
Turns out she worked at Martha Stuart also and now has a new job as a designer at another company (forgot the name ,Sorry) in the fashion world.
Gina started bike commuting two years ago an loves it. I think she rides from Bayridge?
If you want to clarify all this just send me an EM! .

I bet she rides about 8 ? miles each Way. Sounds like a good ride!
Oh yea ….Bike New York ,Since you asked
I‘ve done it many times.Its lots of fun.The start is jam packed and there are lots of little mishaps at the beginning.The ride gets held up in several places and at times can be a real pain. Especially getting home from Staten Island
But I highly recommend doing it. Its an Amazing way to see the city as long as you don’t mind the other 30,000 cyclists!
There she goes Give her a WAVE!
…Thanks for chatting

Some Others on my way Home
Going to a Gig?
Just a happy Rider!
