Brooklyn Oasis: "Bicycle Station Inc."; NYC: Bike Lane etiquette; NYC: Bike Routes

Photo by: David Y.

So As most of you know, i am currently cruising a 50's vintage beach cruiser ( "Griffin" ), and sometimes those things need minor repair to keep them chuggin'. i was headed to Prospect park today, to take advantage of this wonderful sunny Sunday afternoon, when i noticed "Griffin" having some problems steering. i finally made it to the park and met my good friend Shannon who advised me to go to her bike shop on Vanderbilt. We rode over to the bike shop (Bicycle Station Inc.) where i was told that the main bar holding the handle bars needed a shimmy to keep it in place, and that would take a few minutes. The bike shop owner came over and fixed it on the spot! and only charged me 10.00 dollars which i thought was so awesome!!!, and i got myself a little Spike Lee style hat! i have to take a moment and give him a shout out, so here is my shout out to Bicycle Station Inc.!

NYC Bike Lane Etiquette...

If you are like most bike riders, you like to take advantage of the many bike la
nes this city has to offer. However if you are like me, you encounter several car's either merging into your lane, or just simply parked there. The NY TIMES ran an article today titled, Bike Lanes, Intended for Safety. In the article the times speaks about bikers taking action against vehicles in the bike lanes, creating stencils for motorists, and love for bikes. the article is worth reading.......
