    While not a commute I thought I'd share this story with you all. I needed to go west on Chambers so I took the Brooklyn Bridge and not the Manhattan. I met this amazing family of tourists in the bike...

    I suspect if I put this on my bike in NYC I'd rip it off a block or two later. If you don't wear earbuds and look back every once awhile you'll rarely be taken by surprise.

    I'm sorry what did I miss read? Your statement "That is often parroted but its not a universal truth by a long shot." Which is actually kinda of insulting or the part where you explicitly state you...

    I've had people make illegal turns in front of me when I used to hug the curb at reds. It also puts you at increased chance of getting right hook. It makes larger vehicles think they can turn around...

    My rules are as follows:

    1. Yellow, neon yellow or black cars equal danger!
    2. Out of state plates equal danger.
    3. Rear light is always on.
    4. Carry bungee cord always.
    5. The NYPD is not...

    Where I am it's a bit different then the rest of the country. Turns on red in New York City are illegal unless a sign is posted stating otherwise. So I stay in either the bike lane, far right as safe...

    kickstart Yep and in the real world taking the lane is, when warranted, one of the best things a cyclist can do.


    When did the A&S forum become the victim bashing forum? Frankly every time I see...

    Didn't volunter for anything just stating facts. I can see your reading skills are just as horrible as your logic skills.

    Yeah come to NYC cyclists and cars often use colorful language to make our mutual dislike clear. Very few people get beaten as a result. The people claiming the cyclist is caused this are rejecting...

    Exactly this guy was looking for a fight and decided to start one.

    Funny you should say that! Since you can't grasp the difference between a truck trying to run a cyclist off the road and then assaulting a cyclist and a cyclist shooting the driver the bird a few...

    Your post is so dead wrong it's not even funny. In fact it is probably the dumbest thing I've read all day. He flipped off a truck that endangered is life. Nothing wrong with that. In NYC we tend to...

    Hmm, I deal with metal humps on the Manhattan Bridge that form similar sized bumps. The trick I use is to maintain a steady speed, stand out of the saddle and aim for the smoothest bits. I don't...

    I didn't sleep well at all last night so I decided to take a day off from riding and take the subway. I felt bad about the decision until I checked my app and realized that I have rode 9 out of the...

    "Who struck a car that turned in front of him." Who struck a car implies he did the action which was getting hit by a car. While cyclist struck by car implies that the car hit him. It's a classic...

    I'd say thieves actually go for the cheaper lock and I have some extremely limited evidence to back it up. My friend bought a very cheap POS MTB at Target. He also bought a cheap cable lock. I...

    Awful simply awful! Most of the comments I saw we're fairly respectful and subdued.

    While not the worst headline over a cyclist's death it's not the best. As written it makes it seem like the cyclist was at fault while in actuality the car hit and killed him.
  22. Foolish police captain and crackdown

    I regularly cycle through the 88th precinct and I see no more or less unruly cyclist behavior then anywhere else in the city. I do however see more dangerous driver behavior then in other parts of...

    As much as I'd like to see one it'll never happen. The tunnels are woefully overcrowded as is and there is just no way to safely get a bike lane in. The walk ways couldn't even accommodate one!
