Kickstart Spin/Small Haul NYC

Just a great stretch of weather the last two weeks…Here are some NYC scenes I caught got while you were at work!

OWS Cowboy

Marathon runners enjoy the view











Peace and Quiet almost










Runners were all over downtown sporting their Marathon Medals. I asked the group sitting on the bench(above) how they liked Running NYC for the day. Seems they are not that fond of entering Manhattan….  Brooklyn is King!

I totally understand why!


One of my happy customers…..Puro Chile

One year anniversary

Puro Chile Participates in Travel & Leisure Global Bazaar

Although this isn’t the actual pod used in the rescue was still exciting to see it at

Puro Chile

221 Center Street,



Camilla will be happy to help you! She also invited me to get into the pod for a picture, just in to big of a hurry!











Good use of a car in NYC





























Midtown traffic continues to be an absolute  NIGHTMARE especially on the east side. What happened to that incredible Don’t Block the Box campaign? Is it possible drivers read it WRONG and are doing the best they can to BLOCK the BOX? I sat through two GREEN lights before I was able to squezzzzze through!









Finally some Peace and quiet.

I know it may be hard to believe but the East Side Bike way is a great place to get away from it all!

Love riding the East Side Bike way

Greenspeed gets into NYC Marathon


Got a call from my friend Robert Matson of NYC Recumbent Supply asking if I’d deliver Denise her trike.

Urban Mobility Project/Small Haul delivered this beautiful Greenspeed trike to Denise yesterday!

Good Luck on your ride!

Run or Cycle?

(Greenspeed Magnum runs in NYC Marathon)

So last year, after a lot of campaigning, Denise Lanier, a former Triathlete, now disabled with MS, won the right to compete on a recumbent tricycle. Read on…here

Looking Up!

I know why I love crossing bridges so much…


That's the new Carousel down there










Looking Up





No need to go Dutch – Urban Mobility Project

Here are some products we might be making available to you in the near future.

The Long John

Kyle is a cargo bike builder from Human Powered Machines in Oregon. He’s come to NYC to set up shop and start production of the Long John Child/Cargo Carrier. Not only did he come to NYC he rode one of his Long John’s here from the west coast!

We are discussing partnering and getting his product out on the market in NYC this spring! The Long John is made in USA. It’s way lighter and much less expensive than the Dutch version.

Contact us at Urban Mobility Project for more info such as custom child box and weather protection!
























We also got a visit from AZUB Recumbent, well established  in the Czech Republic. Looking to build a state side presence. They showed up with a double suspension two wheeler and a very speedy looking fold-able trike!

Cargo Bikers!

I always see black car drivers spending the whole day sitting and waiting for their masters, all day long. Some of them even a sleep. I always thought I should offer to rent them a bike for an hour or two!

Why long-haul truckers are turning to bikes, and spandex


Truckers now have an alternative to sitting around a truck stop. A movement to encourage them to ride bikes as an antidote to their sedentary life is gaining speed. Scott Grenerth owns and operates an 18-wheeler, which he drives cross-country hauling thousands of pounds of cargo. His truck also carries something lightweight, which most truckers don’t carry: a bike.

Next thing you know they’ll be using Cargo Bikes to do inner city deliveries!

Nothing Stops Em!

Despite the frequent downpours. Nothing seems to stop tourists from walking the Brooklyn Bridge!

Heavy fog-Ready to pour!

Here they come


What's this?

Usually the bridge is jammed with vendors selling water, tee shirts and hawking Bikes to Rent, not today!


Recumbent Blog

Glad to hear good news with the bad. The end of The Recumbent Blog…..maybe?

First things first. We had to call a halt to the Recumbentblog in March when Penny got terribly ill. Many tests, hospitals and ambulances later (I’ve lost track), and after what seemed like every scan known to man, she has gradually recovered… despite the fact that nobody seems to have any definitive idea of what happened to her! She is well enough now that we have been for several recumbent rides. Thanks to all of you who showed such concern over her wellbeing.

He’s rode in the fog and wind and rain. He’d come home after school and go out in the dark with lights on. I call him the ‘Destinator.’

Flying Through Traffic

The Streetflyer is a Bike That Simulates the Feeling of Flying
By Yuka Yoneda 02/28/11\


Who hasn’t fantasized about being able to fly above the clouds? While human beings have come up with ways to mimic the feeling, here’s an option for those of us who are, frankly, a little too wussy to try out base jumping or hang-gliding right off the bat. Created by Dr. Carsten Mehring, light-weight carbon-fiber vehicle that allows you to get a running start and then simply put your legs up to get you into a horizontal hang-gliding position using a body-harness. You won’t be more than 3 feet above the ground, but you can imagine how freeing it will feel to “soar” through the streets in the Superman position (though you may not look as cool as you feel). The concept vehicle could also be used for rehabilitation purposes since it allows the user to be in a suspended vertical position while propelling themselves forward with no impact to their limbs.
