Aren't I the Popular One

There is a massive amount of hoopla going on in NYC. Taking such a simple, fun, Eco easy way of getting from point A to B is causing a major UPROAR in NYC.

I'm not sure how cycling will handle all the attention it's been getting!

I went to a playground in Williamsburg to visit the in -laws as usual all the kids in the playground ran out and climbed in!

Taking Jackson to school on the cargo box!
Two kids that just jumped on!

Pick up at school!
I can still ride kids on the back but its just not the same!

Just in case you'd like to order one

Worksman Cycles Today

Go Oil Independent.....
No Need to go Dutch! 

 Worksman USA 

Compact Pedi-Cycle is scheduled to be on as part of the Neiman Marcus Fantasy Gift Catalog.

 WOW..I actually caught it on the Today Show! Its a real beauty and I'm sure very affordable.The price tag of a traditional pedicab would knock your socks off @ $4000 - $7000 USD

I wonder if Worksman would agree to give one a trial run in Battery Park City! I think once parents see how Compact and Easy it is to get kids around and go shopping they might actually purchase one!

These Trikes have a much slimmer profile than a traditional  pedicab which makes them extremely easy & fun to ride

Happy Pups
Sorry -its a little blurry - Ill see if I can get a better picture

Don't forget how much cash you'll save and the great health benefits!

  • Pick up the relatives at the Subway
  • Save $$$ and quit the Gym & Spinning classes
  • Lower your Health Insurance Rates
  • Save lots of money on Taxi's and Public Transportation
  • Come and go whenever you want

One thing I'd like to see is weather(rain) protection....I think Ill give em a call!
If you need to get your kids around the neighborhood Pedicab style trikes are the hands down way to go..
I live in Battery Park City and use mine everyday!

American Cargo USA!

Worksman USA
There has been a huge influx of cargo bikes from all-over sea's.Yes, they are great bikes......

However Worksman Cycles is really getting into the cargo market. They've been making CARGO bikes and trikes Since 1898! There are so many Worksman Bikes around NYC that you probably can't see em!

Look at any work trike or bike siting outside the grocery , I bet it's a Worksman!

I've blogged many American cargo bikes in the past but finally noticed them when a neighbor asked about getting her child to school. I noticed that they make a great mini Pedicab, Really - I wish I had the place  I'd buy one tomorrow! 

These bikes are HALF the price of Imports and are beautifully made!

It's truly the perfect Urban Mobility Vehicle!
Check it out "The Family Chariot Cycle" 

Here are some beautiful new products they've  put on the market right here in Queens,NY

Clear our insane Bike Lanes

Cycling use to be such a simple thing!!!!

Scott M Stringer
Borough President of Manhattan

Dear Friend,

After receiving numerous constituent complaints, my office studied bike lane use in neighborhoods throughout Manhattan. The verdict was clear: while bike lanes bring a tremendous benefit to New York City, misuse by all parties— motorists, pedestrians and cyclists —undermines their success. Over 22 hours my staff observed more than 1,700 infractions ranging from motor vehicles driving through the lanes and pedestrian use to cyclists going the wrong direction.

Today I announced the results of this unprecedented study, entitled Respect the Bike Lane and Clear the Path, and proposed several key recommendations to improve bike lane safety including increased enforcement, a public education campaign on dooring, and reserving parking spots for deliveries along commercial streets to discourage potential bike lane blockages

If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions on this or any other work my office is doing please do not hesitate to call 212.669.8300
