Couple of ways to recycle.

Now the last thing you need is another person telling you how you can make a difference in making the planet more “Green.” How to properly recycle in the work place while the janitor dumps all the white paper into the regular trash thus rendering the giant corporation you work for exempt from having [...]

Blessing of the Bikes 08

Ah yes…it must be close to May, because its time for the 10th annual, Blessing of the Bicycles.” I’ve never understood this event but I feel obliged to mention it mainly because it kicks off the, “Bike Riding Season,” what ever that means.Photo by: A. Courtney

Every year, hundreds of cyclists file into [...]

Critical Mass is BACK in NYC

original picture by: Jeff DanielWas I in some sort of time warp? Propelled back to 2001 when this free wheeling bike ride of fun rode through my beloved city on the last Friday of each month? The April Critical Mass ride, who’s attendance had been dwindled to a few brave souls…was back with new [...]

Nope, its your friendly neighborhood constructions or should we say disruption.Gothamist has a story on local neighborhood activists banning together to halt construction of a private restaurant and park plans.

Friday-APRIL 25th, Arbor Day, [...]

Thanks to Gothamist and BikeSnob

Well according to the comments I got on Gothamist, you’d be hard pressed to believe you were reading the work of the biggest sucker on the planet. I had to share my experience with the online community in the hopes of people looking for my bike and possibly getting it back, despite the scathing [...]

Thanks for all the responses

Thanks everyone. I stayed up late last night scouring the neighborhood for green areospoke wheels. I called my renters insurance and could make a claim for a $500.00 deductable. I’ll be on the hunt for a new green bicycle.

More importantly then my own stupidity I wanted to announce that there will be [...]

Happy Earthday…I got a great present: MY BIKE STOLEN

I’m in shock. Someone just stole my track bike, and I let them do it. After biking in NYC for 18 years I just fell victim to a scam. It happened April 22nd, 5:00pm. I was on 1st ave between 13th and 14th, in front of the birdbath bakery, which gives you 25% [...]

Back in the New York Groove with Tragedy

Well after another round of a sick computer and the removal of an enlarged parathyroid…

I’m back to being the, “pain in the neck” of NYC bike community and beyond.

First off let me give a big shout out to Digital Society on 10th street for fixing my laptop. Apple care helped a bunch [...]

Some old news round-up.

So just to be thorough, here are some things I missed that went on in late March and April:

1) Our own Kevin “Squid” Bolger, organizer of the Velocity Tour and co-owner of Cyclehawk messengers, got into the NY Post, about his dedication to being a bicycle courier. Congratulations Kevin.

2) The Cutthroats mutant [...]
