Easter biking

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« Awesome Easter.  What it lacked in tradition it balanced with family calls and time with Hana including a Citibike ride in Jersey City.  Calls to Julie, my mom, Drew, Ryan with signs of life on the other end from David, Kevin, and Brian.   From childhood to forty plus I had a bike always within reach properly secured, and maintained.  I loved everything about bikes including maintaining them.  As long as I can remember I could change a flat tire, and my maintenance advanced to most of the work typically needed.  Since maintaining a bike in NYC poses special problems including theaft, public transport, the Hudson River, and storage my four decade streak of always having a bike ended, but with my twelve month subscription to Citibikes it’s resumed.  Today my biking fits someone my age, which means I have no need to be agressive, fast, or bike fashionalbe, and with all the stuff missing that seems to ID my biking passed I still enjoy riding a bike.  Dear kind readers: To understand what I describe you’ll have to understand a little about transporation in NYC.  Sincerely, Tom Doody  Less than twenty dollars per month is about eighty dollar less than a subway, so for the many short commutes that reach NYC via PABT its a bargain.  In addition all the short commutes going across the island the bike is also faster — much faster.  Dear kind reader: Remember Hendrix: ¿Crosstown traffic?  Sincerely, Tom Doody.  Sometimes the racks fill near PABT when everyone is rushing home, which sets the point I’m trying to make about my comfort at my new middle-age bike-riding speed.  A woman in heels and a skirt passed me rushing to get one of the last spots near PABT and even though I could have geeded up and gotten there before her and the other less notewothy people I was happy at my pace  — God it feels good to be back on a bike. »» about me  302-990-2346  twitter  nearlincoln@hotmail.com  contact us
