View from the Manhattan Bridge - heading to Summer Streets
Saturday morning I woke up as early as I could manage, hopped on my bike, and headed for Manhattan to take part of this year's Summer Streets. It was a surreal experience to ride up and down Lafayette and Park Avenue with no cars and only fellow bikers and pedestrians.
Some of what I saw:
On the Brooklyn Bridge heading home.
It was a great day for biking and the 22+ miles on the bike felt like a cakewalk due to the sheer exhilaration of riding in the city with no cars in sight. If you missed this past weekend's event not to worry - this Saturday it will be happening again, but it's the last time so go out and ride if you can!
