Today in NYC - Tribeca Film Festival - Elton John

Had to walk through the promenade because Tribeca Film festival is hosting a free concert tonight!
Getting the stage  ready for Elton John....

Saw this sign on the ground on the beaten up, battered East Side Bikeway..I guess they fixed he bump.
So I took a picture of it..I guess its an ad for Ikea?

Thought my cargo set up would look good with all the yellow flowers behind...
so I stopped and took a picture.
BTW- Thats the east side bikeway just before 23rd street.

This is the ultimate Cargo set-up
This set-up is really fast,a streamlined bicycle and streamlined trailer!
But you need really smooth roads because of the speed,so I probably won't use this set-up too much,but man does it fly!

See you on the road!

Flying Through Traffic

The Streetflyer is a Bike That Simulates the Feeling of Flying

by Yuka Yoneda, 02/28/11

Who hasn’t fantasized about being able to fly above the clouds? While human beings have come up with ways to mimic the feeling, here’s an option for those of us who are, frankly, a little too wussy to try out base jumping or hang-gliding right off the bat. Created by Dr. Carsten Mehring, the Streetflyer is a human-powered, light-weight carbon-fiber vehicle that allows you to get a running start and then simply put your legs up to get you into a horizontal hang-gliding position using a body-harness. You won’t be more than 3 feet above the ground, but you can imagine how freeing it will feel to “soar” through the streets in the Superman position (though you may not look as cool as you feel). The concept vehicle could also be used for rehabilitation purposes since it allows the user to be in a suspended vertical position while propelling themselves forward with no impact to their limbs.

How often is it that you see a cyclist riding under water? Yasser is an Egyptian blogger, and member of the The Cairo Cyclists Club, who took a dive last year in order to make a humorous statement with a serious environmental message behind it.
While Egyptians have always been opinionated and outspoken, the January 25th revolution has amplified numerous issues, including the need to become a more sustainable society.

Caution Live Cargo!

Battery Park City's very own cargo bike service.....
small haul NYC did it's first pet pick up today.....

You can't be everywhere - Yvette Rose of Joulebody Kickstart called with what she thought might be a crazy request.She asked if I could pick up her dog Papi from the vet on east 59th street. I've carried literary everything under the sun

Here I am with everything under the Sun

Papi was handed to me in his little carry bag that I gently placed in my Burley Trailer.
I wanted to stay of roads with heavy traffic so I rode Papi aross 60th street and through Central Park to the West Side Bikeway and down to Battery Park City. I checked on him a few times,he was all snuggled up in a little ball and didn't seem phased by the ride at all. When I took him out of his carrier he was very playful and loaded with energy.

 I was happy to do it!

Another Happy Customer!

Small Haul NYC - Sweat Shop

Small Haul NYC

I had a great day in the snow.

Got a call from  Frankly Wines in Tribeca, up to 880 5th Ave!

I took 6th all the way and then decided that it would be a much better choice to go through through Central Park up to 72nd St.
My hands got so sweaty I had to take my gloves off on the way home!

Glad I  went through Central Park!
Parked at 880 Fifth Av..No trouble finding a spot!

I can flatbed it too!...

Still Time!

R I D E  W I T H  L A R R Y 

10 days Left!

They are inching towards they're goal but if they don't make it they start from Zero!
I've seen the world wide network of cyclists rise up over and over! But I'm just not sure why you all aren't jumping at the chance to help out when really needed!

Larry is a true Champion of Humanity. He has the drive, motivation and will to keep going no matter what. His Spirit will  not be shattered even if they don't quite make it to the goal.I'm sure they will pick up , regroup and start again!
 I'm sure you can send something
Don't think its for someone else to take care of !

From The Recumbent Blog...

Larry / Friday, January 7th, 2011 
We begin this year with a lot of energy and excitement, and also with a new website!
We are very thankful to the wonderful people at EGR International for supporting Ride with Larry and helping us build this great new site.
And its getting down to the wire for our fundraising campaign! If we don’t reach $50,000 by February 1st than we won’t get any of the money which will go to all the filming expenses that quickly accumulate on a project of this size! You can see the list below for just a few of our goals with this film. If everyone makes a small contribution, the equivalent of their morning cup of coffee or greater, think of how powerful that would be! We hope that you join us with your support to help us achieve this goal! Please share the link with others who would like to contribute:http://kck.st/faTC3H
