Concrete planters and CitiBikes



Iíve been utilizing 12 volt 10 amp/h lithium iron phosphate batteries and solar panels on my bikes. Recently added strobe lights to the ebike.

I'd like to bike from the LIRR in Woodside to the office in Long Island City but my wife is nervous so I don't have a lot of experience on a bike, especially in an urban setting so has asked me to hold off until she can ride the route with me (she's been biking her whole life).
My wife rides an electric bike from Oceanside up to Mercy from time to time. My main commute is a walk across a parking lot but when I need to go visit with people nearby for work I'll take a bicycle for the commute.

M222 at Alternate Unisphere

M219 at dawn

Photo of the bike I rode up to 125th Street.
M219 is lightweight. All corrugated polypropylene had to be reinforced with Honeycomb Polypropylene.
