What’s So Great About Bicycle Commuting in NYC


I’ve commuted from every corner of the city.
I ride Rain ,Shine,Snow,Wind or Temp from neg 2 deg’s to 102 deg’s Fahrenheit.I know why I do it. My family doesn’t think anything of it if I gear up and go out to ride to work in a severe winter blizzard,seems perfectly normal?

My neighbors may view it a little differently, especially our Doorman!

I don’t know, it’s just not a big deal to me.

So I was just wondering what DRIVES us onto our Bicycles day in and out to go back and forth from home to work in Rain , Snow or High winds!

BTW , I don’t have one photo of myself cycling in any blizzards.

Please leave me your thoughts in the comments.
Very Curious,
Thanks

Women and Bicycles


What the bicycle offered was a kind of liberation in terms of movement, an independent, affordable means of transportation,” Clarke said.


Especially for women. Suffragette Susan B. Anthony wrote that the bicycle “has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world.” She called it “the freedom machine.”

Family Bicycle Ride Brooklyn Bridge/Fulton State Park



Get out of town ,,,,Urban Mobility Project! 


Any family can bicycle over the Brooklyn Bridge to Robert Fulton Park.This is a child friendly bicycle trip.
There is a bike lane on Murray st that goes through City Hall Park right onto The Brooklyn Bridge.
Lots of kids,lots of art,you can go Kayaking on weekends or just sit by the beach(well a NYC version)!
Go slow on the Bridge its kinda nuts up there.
Brooklyn Bridge Park is on the Brooklyn waterfront between the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges.
EZ 3 Recumbent Trike
Aimee used the EZ 3 Recumbent trike.Its much easier to stay up and ride slow with your kids.
Good Safe ride for kids that can ride 5 miles or more or beginners to urban NYC city cycling.

 The park is great but the trains going over the Manhattan bridge are hard to take for too long…
make sure you bring EARPLUGS or Excedrin !
Cycling to Brooklyn is way better than taking any NYC Subway or walking!
