Greetings from the bicycle amusement park known as New York City. Taxis, potholes, glass, grates, gravel, garbage, horse crap . . . we got it all for you to dodge. Oh, and the police arrest people for riding their bikes together once a month. Bloomberg has a vendetta out on Critical Mass. You'd think he has better things to do with his time. Yes, New York City is an interesting place to ride. I commute to work everyday when the weather is above freezing and love it. My trustee steed is a 10-year-old Cannondale R900.
