Congratulations to the winner of SUGOI twitter contest

Just wanted to give a shout out to David Patrick (@dpatrick1a) for winning the SUGOI twitter contest. Like a Mark Cavendish sprint, David responded to the last question in just 21 seconds after I posted it on Friday and won himself a new jersey courtesy of SUGOI apparel.

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, [...]

MAD PROPS to all those riding out there:

Saw this posted on twitter by: @chrismcnally

Twitter is the new 311

Hows this for a direct response.

Jonathan(on twitter: @bkynbiker) and I, were riding home last night from a very productive Time’s Up events meeting. We stopped off at the La Plaza Cultural Garden where they were having a bonfire, a little rebirth for discarded Christmas trees. On the way back we took the [...]

Not sure the angry residents and Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz were expecting to be out numbered in their “call to action” against an already created bike lane on Prospect Park West this morning.

According to a number of reports on twitter and one on Streetsblog.org. It seemed like more people came out in [...]
