    I happen to live in NYC and I can tell you that I've been cited for running red lights before. The police here do care, even if it's not very consistent.

    Last week, I got a flat tire on my morning commute. I was within walking distance from the office, so even though I was going to be late, I decided to walk the rest of the way. As I was heading...

    Normally I don't give my Brooklyn commute much thought. But this afternoon coming home, the air was cool and I just didn't want to rush home like usual. So I took a more pleasant and longer route,...

    This is a promo video, of course, but it's a shame that they lump all the different kinds of protected bike lanes into one category. I think there's a big difference in safety and viability...
