APRIL FOOL’s Day, #30daysofbiking

I think the biggest fool’s day event was the very successful run of the @bronxzooscobra on twitter. Oh well, now that the 20″ Egyptian cobra is safely back in her tank and not gallivanting all over the city, somehow will have to find a way to get on with our lives.

Today starts #30daysofbiking, an event started by two cyclists out of Minnesota, Patrick Stephenson and Zach Schaap, to encourage people to get on their bikes and ride everyday of April. Here is a little interview I did with them last year.

Here in NYC we can look forward to the first day in riding conditions quite possibly like this:


If you’d like to participate, go to their website here, and register. Post your rides with the hashtag #30daysofbiking on twitter.

There will be a few Friday alleycat races including our own famous Steve “Pops” Kleins right here in NYC.

Steve is known for picking checkpoints on the most obscure street names around so this will really be a test of your knowledge of the city. This is a fun paced ride open to all.

Meet at 6:00pm at Tribeca Park, Beach St. and West Broadway. Manhattan. Race starts at 7:00pm sharp. 4/1/11
