GO RIDE YOUR CITY!
Went for a New Years Day spin in Central Park on my Goldrush Recumbent Bicycle. After two weeks of celebrating I feel like a bloated COW. If I don't get a little exercise I'm afraid I might Explode!
I stopped on the roadway to take my camera out and got the usual reaction from some tourists left over from Times Sq.
They just couldn't get over it. Recumbent Bicycles seem to have that effect on people in New York City!
No Matter what goes on in the world there are always be signs of life in Central Park! As I sat on the roadway watching everyone go by ,people that I didn't even know were coming over to wish me a Happy New Year.I guess it was a good chance for someone to introduce themselves, after seeing me doing laps on that funny looking bike for the past several years. It was good to get out!
Cycling since the age of six. Never got off my bike,.I became a bicycle messenger in the 80's for Can Carriers, Started Born to Run Bicycle Messengers a few years after. I guess I made an unconscious decision to use my car as little as possible in NYC until I just eventually got rid of it.
I've bicycle toured all over the States including Alaska,and Hawaii!I also made it to the jungles of Mexico. As far as Europe I've only made it to France.I've always been a Cycling Commuter in NYC from Manhattan,Queens and Ft Lee ,NJ.
My wife makes fun of me because I hardly know how to navigate the subway!
