    Where in this day and age do you even get the idea that you could bring a bike, folding or not, into anywhere? There are stupid questions and then there is the one you just asked. Use your head.

    "best bike shops" and "NYC" don't go together. All bike shops in NYC are fail. Don't waste your time. Use the internet.

    Park closes at 1am (and NYPD is diligent about getting everyone out), so "Midnight Ride" should be more like "evening ride".

    As one who does 99% of their weekly mileage (on bike and foot for the...

    But we have bike lanes and are much smaller on the street. Yes, there are many cyclists that break traffic laws, but generally they aren't 5' wide and riding 4 abreast. Not to mention most cyclists...

    I'll one up you. How about a regulation banning those damn things from city streets, period. I'm all for greening up NYC but the people peddling those pedicabs are 99% of the time NOT cyclists and...

    For the past 5 years I've done 90% of my training (bike and on foot) in Central Park, usually between 9-Midnight, year round. It's wonderful because NO ONE IS THERE and it's empty and all mine which...

    7-10mph average? Goodness. My runs are faster than that (and I'm slow). That sure is a flower watching experience and far different than the hammerfests I'm accustomed too on group rides.

    If I see someone coming at me the wrong way, in a bike lane or otherwise, I don't move. I give those idiots no quarter. If anything I'll move over to push them into traffic so maybe they will have a...

    There isn't a single part of the main loop in Central Park that you need a headlight for (and you aren't supposed to be riding on any of the paths off the loop). In fact the only area that was...

    Why? So you can turn it into another piece of crap? You don't deserve a frame like that my friend. You barely deserve the one you have already destroyed.
