Congestion pricing's failure to launch has not deterred Mayor Mike from turning New York into a more bike friendly City.
I have always liked the European idea of placing the parking lane between the bike lane and traffic; but Mayor Mikey has gone one better! He will protect the bicyclists from traffic by luring unsuspecting midwestern and Euro tourists halfway out into broadway with cafe tables. They ought to just put a bunch of porta-potties out there since half of the wandering midtown-morons are just looking for a place to pee without buying something.
I am looking forward to the workout I can get riding a full eight blocks. Watch out naked cowboy, "buck-naked bike boy" is bearing down on ya!
