Back on the Bike

After a long hiatus due to the cross country move and business travel, I took a great bike ride today. My mission: find a route I can use for my commute to work every day and sign up for a gym near the office where I can change and keep my riding gear during the day. Mission accomplished. It’s so great to see New York becoming bicycle friendly. The bike path along the Hudson River (two thirds of my route) is scenic and well organized for lots of bike traffic. And the main streets are getting more and more bike lanes, especially with the new Citi bikes installed all over town. It looks like my commute will be about 40 minutes each way via bike – not much longer than if I took the subway. And my folding bike does well on the flat terrain of Manhattan. So happy to be back on the bike.
