  1. the cities of Hudson County are great

    I took advantage of the beautiful weather on Tuesday to make my first ride of the year through New Jersey. (I had gone over the George Washington Bridge once a few weeks ago; but that time I just...

    The Queens streets are much nicer on weekday afternoons than on weekends. I think that a weekday afternoon is the best time to ride in Queens.

    You don't say where you are starting from; but let's...

    Oh, I misunderstood! So Steve was right: it was the Jersey City-to-Newark (via Kearny) part that you were upset about. That bit is not what I would call comfortable; but I have had no special...

    I think that Punkinevil is talking about it being dangerous once one arrives in Newark; he is not referring to getting from Jersey City to Newark. It is the route from Doremus Ave. along Raymond...
  5. Wow, that really stinks. A look at the map...

    Yes, the bike/pedestrian lane across this bridge (the Victory Bridge) was closed fall of 2014 due to a number of suicides. I am unable to find information on whether it has been reopened.[/QUOTE]

    Wow, congratulations on going from New York to Philly! I did that last year, riding there and back. They were amongst my longest rides ever (116 miles going; 119 miles coming back); and the whole...

    I am probably going to be out there this coming Sunday. I don't know if I can muster up the nerve to try the Raymond Blvd. route; I think I'll probably go down Doremus to Roanoke Ave.

    Oops! Yes, I suppose it was the bit about coming within an eyelash of a bus that kind of made me think that you might be yanking my chain. Sorry for misinterpreting.

    Anyway, I also like mixing...

    Oh, of course. I should have known. I have a Photobucket account; maybe I'll use it the next time I want to post a picture.

    Thanks for the answer.

    Sorry to ask this again, but how do you get a full-sized graphic into a post? The graphics that Kaos Joe and I attached came out as thumbnails.

    I am not entirely sure that you are being sincere. But, to reply to your words at face value, I will say that for me it is definitely both. The fitness effects of daily riding have turned my life...

    New York's streets may be busy; but they certainly aren't pothole-infested!

    Well, there is one street that I take through Brooklyn on my way to work that is a truck route; and that one gets kind...

    Mostly within New York City. I love riding in Manhattan and the Bronx; and I live on the Brooklyn/Queens border, so I can accumulate plenty of miles just by touring those spacious boroughs.

    But...

    Sorry to post a second time, but I have a technical question: how did you get that graphic into the post full-size?

    Hehe! Well, I commute to work, about 10 1/2 miles each way. So, if I do nothing else but ride to and from work Monday through Friday, that's about 400 miles in the month. That is what I shoot for...

    I am glad to see that I am not the only one who keeps a graph of his riding! I began doing that three years ago, and it has kept me motivated.

    I also had a great month of May, passing 700 miles....

    Even though my planned trip to L.A. has been cancelled for this year on account of my having been robbed, I am hoping to do it when I have accumulated enough money again, perhaps next year.

    Thanks. It's quite a devastating blow; it changes a whole lot. I'll never fully recover to the point where I was; there's just not enough time in life for that.

    But, as hard as it is to do, I am...

    Tuesday was by far the best day of the year for riding for me. I did 53 miles in Queens, Manhattan, and the Bronx. It was my best day of riding since September 28 of last year.

    The trip is off for this year. I just found out that I have been ripped off for multiple thousands of dollars in cash. Now I can no longer afford the trip, or anything else.

    Thanks for the comment!

    I had the trip pencilled in on a couple of occasions; but I had to postpone it for various reasons. Most recently I thought I would do it next week, starting May 13. (The...

    For about 25 years I have been going to Arc de Triomphe in Queens, in Richmond Hill near the Brooklyn-Queens border. It is on Jamaica Ave. and 114th Street, a little east of the 111th Street stop on...

    Thanks a lot for your informative comments!

    Right, the bike shop that I have my eye on is on Wilshire Blvd. in Santa Monica. It used to be called "Downtown L.A. Bicycles", but it has changed its incongruous name to "Westside Bicycles". My...
