Photoblog: Manhattan Loop

Yesterday I took my bike out and ended up doing 39 miles and looping the island of Manhattan. I followed the east side bike path north, crossed at 125th street, and took the west side bike path south. It was a great day for a ride.

As you can see, I biked all over the place. There were a lot of interesting things happening, and there were a lot of cars double parked in bike lanes. Perhaps the most interesting sight was the forklift driving a pallet of boxes down a street in the bike lane; in reverse!

Also, I busted my bell while biking over the Brooklyn Bridge as I tried to alert tourist pedestrians that I was riding through. The bell loosened, then popped off and was lost forever.

I guess last night was an unintentional trip through art. My own attempt(with the passing train and the reflection), the canvassed wall art, and the graffiti art to go along with a photo of McSorley’s(arguably art in the sense of barroom style) and a Red Sox game in a NYC bar(a thing of beauty).

42 Miles through the five boroughs of New York City. This is how I saw it!

The only gripe, that is well documented on Twitter, is the relatively constant stop & go throughout the bike tour.

This was a 30 mile adventure that started in south Brooklyn, went over into Manhattan via the Brooklyn Bridge, up to the Queensboro Bridge, and over into Queens.

My friend took the D train, I took my bike, and we raced to a bakery in Lower Manhattan on a Sunday morning. I won the race, and then biked over the Williamsburg Bridge. Along the way I came across Summer Streets!
