New York City Bike Lanes

I have joined the ranks of bicycle commuters. As a former bicycle messenger and pizza delivery guy, you may wonder why it took me so long to become a bicycle commuter. I didn't have a bike. Now I have one.

I have to say, biking in New York is a LOT better than it used to be. As much heat as she takes, Janette Sadik-Khan, New York City's Transportation Commissioner and Mayor Bloomberg have taken a bold step in creating as many bike lanes as they have. I can ride all the way from the upper east side in Manhattan all the way to the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx in a protected bike lane.

Check out all the bike lanes in New York City here.
