There is an "cycling" article in the Aug 1-8, 2005 Issue, page 56, "The Everything Guide to Cycyling In and Out of Town". I'll step back now and let you all comment :D

what is up with two conflicting suggestions for the Top Ten City Survival Skills:
"6. Avoid the most dangerous streets. Messengers single out Herald Square; Canal and Bowery; Broadway and Union Square West; E. 23rd St. and Park Avenue; and the Holland Tunnel area.
7. Take shortcuts. The fastest way downtown is Broadway. To get crosstown, take 14th, 23rd, or 34th—they have multiple lanes. The Park Avenue tunnel is a quick if sketchy way to buy ten midtown blocks. "

Broadway is a cyclists' no-go. Generally the best way to go more than 20-25 blocks in any direction is just to use one of the wider peripheral avenues (10th ave, 1st ave) or the east river/hudson river pathways. Really, any of the central avenues like 5th or 7th are unpleasant to ride down at any time of the day.
