We urgently need all gardeners and garden supporters to bring your voices and letters of concern to a public hearing sponsored by City Council’s Committee on Parks and Recreation at City Hall and speak up for the preservation of all community gardens!
The hearing will focus on the future of community gardens in NYC and specifically Resolution #1890, which calls upon the City to map all GreenThumb community gardens in NYC as parkland, thereby giving them stronger protection in the future!

Continuum Cycles has new Track Frames

cc_white_01

Looking to get a nice Track bike this summer, check out the latest bikes at Continuum Cycles.

From their site:
“Our 2008 frames sold out pretty quickly so we decided it was time to make more. Though the green machine won’t be returning, the aluminum frame is available again.

The 2009 frames are in stock. We’ve made changes based on our own experiences with the frame and from the feedback of riders. The top tube has been shortened, making for a more aggressive geometry. The forks have been redesigned and are now available drilled for brakes.

We also added two new sizes. The first is a 48 cm that is designed to ride 650c wheels. The standover height is 45 cm. We kept the 50, 54 and 56 cm’s and added a 58 cm, as well.

The new frames are available in white with red decals, red with black and raw with white or black all for $600. We are also releasing a limited edition frame for the Spring. Only two frames in each of the five sizes will be available in icy lavender for $650. The limited edition frames are going fast, so if you think you are interested, drop by the shop.”

One of the films at the Bicycle Film Festival 2009

Kalim Armstrong is at it again…

RED HOOK CRITERIUM TRAILER – 2009 Bicycle Film Festival from Kalim Armstrong on Vimeo.

On a dark and rainy night an unsanctioned bicycle race took place through the desolate streets of Red Hook, Brooklyn. Police arrived in full force yet an agreement was met to allow the race to continue. Host John Hoppin takes you through this exciting underground sporting event where racers speed past buses, navigate slick cobblestones and hairpin turns to compete for a podium position. This 16-lap track bike only race brought together Cat-2 racers, bike messengers, and urban cyclists.
