A parade of art. It starts with a common theme that can be replicated in a 3 dimensional sculpture such as a cow or a pig. Often to scale the idea is to modify the basic sculpture into different styles and sprinkle them around the city for tourists to find and marvel. Kind of […]
The 2013 TOD Memorial Day BBQ was probably one of the wildest BBQ’s the NYC cycling community has ever seen. You know we only know how to go bigger, faster and crazier. Come on out and bring your family to meet our family. The grill fires up […]
Brommie Yummie, No it’s not a new food truck making some sort of asian fusion taco. It does have to do with food though…Steve Haung is at it again, providing rides for Brompton foldup fans and great food.
You do have to have a Brompton FoldUp…but you can rent one from the experts at nycewheels.com on the UES.
He has another food tour coming up this Sunday (5/18/14)
Here is more from Steve:
If you are in NYC this Sunday 05/18 from 12pm to 5pm, please consider
joining me for a brommie folding bike food adventure! Since May is
National Burger Month as well as Asian Pacific Islander Month, we will
attempt to find burgers and other yummies with East or West
inspirations as we eat, bike, fold… And yes, I will be back riding a
brommie folding bike because it is the proper thing to do for a
brommie yummy after all? If you have an un-brommie, then let’s ride
together at next fold foodie taking place on Sunday 06/08
Brommie Yummie is a “brompton only” leisurely paced folding bike food
ride (around 13-19 miles) with stops in between for food, fun and
interesting conversations. A guide fee of $10/$20 whichever amount you
would like to contribute will be collected at the ride to support the
designing & organizing of brommie yummy.
Most food spots have some sort of vegetarian/vegan options available.
Please let me know if you have any special dietary preferences or
needs so I can be mindful in planning. So come for the food, come for
the ride, but don’t let your dietary preference/restriction prevent
you from joining the fun!
Please reply to this email (creative.facilitatorATgmail.com) with your brommie colour to reserve your
spot for this Sunday 05/18 as soon as possible and I will reply with
ride details as the confirmation by Saturday once I get your
reservation email. Thank you! Continue reading Brommie Yummie, Brompton Fold Up Ride
Like any public institution in America, they face a growing threat from the corporate mono-culture who seeks out the bottom line in it’s never ending race to the bottom. The model tends to be proclaim the institution is failing and can only be saved by modern technology and being run by some sort of […]
The spring version of Harry Schwartzman’s Brooklyn Bike Jumble , NYC’s only bicycle swap meet, was a resounding success. Held last weekend on a humid (and finally stormy) May 10th, this version seemed like the biggest yet with vendors and individual sellers spreading out far and wide around Park Slope’s JJ. Bryne Park. (4th […]
I know Staten Island’s got lots of free right turns on red (for motorists) and can be fairly bike unfriendly…but it’s also a really amazing place to discover on bicycle.
-Amazing Boardwalk on the Beach, fourth largest in the world.
-Tugboat Graveyard (shhh…it’s a secret)
-Fort Wadsworth, for all you war history buffs.
-Wolfe’s Pond Park, mountain bike trails.
-Highest Point on the Eastern Seaboard. (Todt Hill)

The Tour de Staten Island is a fun-filled ride through the neighborhoods of New York’s greenest borough. The tour offers two route lengths of 25 miles and 40 miles, both with an additional five mile route option in still-closed-to-the-public Freshkills Park! Both routes are supported by rest stops stocked with KIND Bars, fruit, Osmo sport drink and good old H20 . The tour is a ride-at-your-own-pace event on roads open to traffic. Unlike other T.A. borough tours, there will not be an NYPD escort or road closures. The route will be marked with painted arrows, riders will receive a cue sheet and will be free to begin the tour as soon as they have checked in and received their official rider bibs. Riders will be supported by volunteer ride marshals and limited sag-wagon services. Continue reading Tour of Staten Island-4.13.14
