Adding to our ranks
Check out this encouraging article in the NY Times today about Deputy Mayor Wolfson and his adventures as a brand spankin' new bike commuter. Although he acknowledged that his commute down the Hudson River path was fairly easy, he remarked that “I’m sort of proof that if I can do this...anyone can do this.” He even said he was going to encourage the Mayor to start biking. Hopefully through a little firsthand experience, our elected officials will start to better understand the joys and challenges of commuting by bike in New York resulting in better integrated policies that will improve the livability of our great city. Three cheers for progress!
