At the end of a very long ride during Summer Streets 2011. Taken by Andy Lin/The Self Portrait Project.
Holy crap I'm excited for Saturday! It's the first day of Summer Streets in Manhattan and I'm looking forward to riding my bike down Park Avenue again. Every year they shut down Lafayette Street and Park Avenue to car traffic and the bikers and pedestrians take over. There are a million free events along different rest stops on the route. Last year was amazing riding through the city. This year includes a rock wall and zip-line. A few of us will be riding from Greenpoint fueled by coffee and excitement. Oh wait. Maybe that's just me.
