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.


Photoblog: Neighborhood Ride

14.16 miles around the neighborhood, not too shabby. Well, a ride around the surrounding neighborhoods, really. The neighborhood of Boro Park doesn’t really have any bike lanes, but it’s a great area to ride around. I crisscrossed the area, and touched Sunset Park, Bay Ridge, and Bensonhurst in my journey.  The photos with lanes are in Sunset Park and Bay Ridge. Bensonhurst isn’t rich with bike lanes either.
