I like bicycles so much, I can't do them justice with words.
The little white fold up caught my eye, in front of the neighborhood bike shop. It was the spring of 1996 and my first NYC bike. The bike was sweet looking and in my budget. I wasn't thinking about getting a bike. I bought it on a whim, asked the shop guy directions to the Brooklyn Bridge, and went to work. I have been commuting by bicycle ever since.
The world opened when I started using a bike for transportation in NYC. I love moving through the neighborhoods, the sites and people on my way.
I am as fast, often faster, than any other way around town & always more fun. It's wonderful riding down Broadway, through Times Square and Herald square. Watching the city lights as I roll over the bridge into Brooklyn.
