Tragedy in Chinatown

More evidence that cars are horrible people-killing monsters that should be banished to underground tunnels. Too awful for words.

You can take your lane with you

About a week ago, the bloggers for a Boston-based product innovation firm, Altitude Inc., posted an image and quick blurb about a "virtual bike lane".
Apparently this projected laser of a bike lane, a Light Lane if you will, doesn't actually exist yet but might be in development. The virtual bike lane has sparked some questions across blogs, like here and here. Some seem to wonder how it would be bright and crisp enough, where it would attach, how legal it would be, and if you could hack some other images besides the traditional bike symbol.

The designers state that the idea behind Light Lane is "Instead of adapting cycling to established bike lanes, the bike lane should adapt to the cyclists."

Winter Break

We're on a winter break here at the blog...NYC is just a mess and currently colder than Berlin. But in the meantime, why don't you start shopping for spring?

Slush



In the morning it was clear and dry - by the end of the day, this bicycle commuter had a wet ride home to look forward to - with no real bicycle lanes, and no plowing of the non-existent lanes, there isn't much hope for bicycle commuting in NYC on a snow day.


Cops Gone Wild


Another sidewalk riding ticket issued in Brooklyn.  Stay tuned for details - this time, it was a friend....
