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:
