    NYC's Boom 'Cycle'

    From the NY Post: It's a Boom 'Cycle'

    Though the fanciest bikes can cost thousands, beginning bike commuters can get a decent ride for between $500 and $800. "Six months of MetroCards is going to buy you an awfully nice setup," Schofield said.
    And kinda sorta related: State cuts down on idling trucks

    So more bikes and cleaner air. That's a good start.

    131,000 and climbing! I've been to 8 of those five borough rides.
    I think NYC has a lot less pot holes than Boston!

    Not to forget that NYC has more comic book heroes than the rest
    of the country combined.

    I did Bike Boston last year. At the end of that ride I'm wishing
    that the Bike NYC peeps would show them how it's done.
