I was up in NYC this weekend visiting some friends, checking out King Kog goldsprints (more on this later), and my friends bike shop in Park Slope. On Saturday we rode out to Coney Island from Brooklyn covering around 30 miles round trip and only getting caught in one downpour on the way.
On Sunday we were all over the place. From Brooklyn, to the LES, then to Chinatown, then back over the Manhattan bridge. We stopped by my friends Pete and Jessica’s new bike shop RIDE BROOKLYN. They have a really wide selection and a great repair shop. Pete’s such an awesome guy that he handed me a teeshirt and some water bottles on the way out! It poured rain while we were eating cheap dumplings but as soon as we were finished the sun came out again.
It was quite an adventure riding around in a new city. For the most part the drivers are pretty respectful of cyclists and bike lanes, but the roads were pretty terrible. Thanks for a great weekend NYC!
