Weighing in a bit late on this. It's hard to disagree with the writer's personal reasons for foregoing bike commuting, but in my experience subway and bus service have worsened. As a home-visiting...

Sometimes the most time-consuming thing is finding a place to lock up if the usual suspects are already taken.

Like you, I hate to take off gloves to fiddle with the bike for any extended period. ...

These look amazing, thank you. I imagine that pedaling creates a flashing effect, too.

Side Lights, What Color?

Sorry, I seem to be having a brain freeze on this question. I've got two lights on the front of my bike (one steady, one blinking) and two on the back (one on my helmet) and thus geeked out, feel...

So far, so good. Had my first day of sub-40 degree commuting last week and it was surprisingly pleasant. Two layers were enough. I am ALL about the pit-zips! When the temperature dips below 30, I...

I like to say that I AM up early. It's just that my "early" is between midnight and 1 a.m. :p

Cool moonscape, Scott!

Beautiful photos, Adam. Such colors. I love the birds on the fence. Thanks for sharing a view I'll never see since I only acknowledge one 7 o'clock per day. ;)

When I started commuting, I observed and sometimes copied other cyclists. This was interesting and a good way to learn the shortest and most efficient routes. After that, though, I made a pact with...

Looking at the pictures, it is hard to see how you have any choice but to take the lane on that strip of road. Hugging the curb would seem to be much more dangerous because it makes you less visible...

My commute might actually be slightly safer at night. Between Brooklyn, NY and midtown Manhattan, traffic is heavier in the morning and I feel like I blend in (in a bad way) with the crush. The...

I'm a Manhattan Bridge convert. The Brooklyn Bridge is more scenic plus you end up at Chambers Street which is preferable for me than Canal. But I got worn down by having to "ride my bell" through...

That looks like a perfect Fall ride. October rides stick in my memory more than any others, maybe because the colors and smells (and sometimes the cold!) are so vivid. I have ridden in the 50 - 55...

Just curious, how long do each of the outbound routes take and which do you prefer? I've considered commuting to Midtown via Queens but am in a Manhattan Bridge rut. :)

It just happened organically. I have never had a driver's license, so car-free is all that I know. Admittedly, I sometimes enjoy the novelty (road trip!!) of riding in other people's cars.
