pretty day, sunny sky May 4, 2010

Skinny B and I hit the streets this weekend to kick start the 2010 riding season with a vengeance: the annual “5 Borough Bike Tour” of greater NYC = 45 miles through Manhattan, Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn and Staten Island. Check, check, check, check and check! They actually closed off roads for this tour, which is 32,000 participants deep, so I got to ride on several major highways of the city. I think I traveled faster on them by bike than I ever have by car.

There is nothing quite like placing butt-in-saddle for the first time all winter. Wind in my helmet hair, pedal-shaped bruises purpling nicely on the back of my legs, the click of gears, the ding of bells… it’s the most wonderful time of the year. Kinda makes me want to sing.

    I really want to know how they did that without green screens and CG. 🙂

    I really want to do this next year. I was in Hawaii this year, so it clearly wasn’t an option! My only problem is that my current bike is a beach cruiser, which is awesome for short rides but heavy as hell, so I don’t know what I’d do about that.
