Found this cool video on Doobybrain.com.. It’s of Austin Horse from Brooklyn Machine Works went head to head with a Mercedes GLK to see who could get from Harlem to the other side of the Brooklyn Bridge the quickest. Given the insane day-time traffic in NYC, it’s no surprise who won this race…
I had to post this. This is so awesome… Makes me wish we had subway system here.
Apparently, the reason why bike lanes were removed by the city on Bedford Avenue NY was that the Hasidim in Williamsburg, Brooklyn began to complain in September about the overly sexy female bikers who use the Bedford Avenue bike lane.
The Bedford Avenue bike lane is a major artery through Brooklyn and to the Williamsburg Bridge, with part of it traversing a neighborhood that is densely Hasid-populated. The men of the Hasidic community has pressured the city to remove the offending corridor, to protect them from the possibility of seeing women ride by in tank tops and shorts and skirts and other shocking states of undress.
Looks like Candy Cranks want to organize a naked ride through that neighborhood. I say … lets do this!!!
