Time: September 11, 2014 afternoon
Place: Madison Avenue. Upper East Side, NYC
An stylishly dressed young woman patiently waits to cross the intersection
She surmises her surroundings
Pushes off when the timing is appropriate
Gives herself a little extra oomph to get going
And then blissfully pedals on her way.
A totally mundane moment in truly world class cycling cities. A breath of fresh air in NYC, where we’re still working on it.
Noticing a lot more relaxed and upright cycling in NYC this summer. A nice trend. Keep up the good work.
Let freedom ring. Pass along the love and teach someone you know how to ride a bicycle.
Gently nudge them on as they find their independence.
When you give kids safe space to ride, they own it.
All our public spaces should be safe enough so that anyone can ride from age 8…
…to 80 and beyond.
Happy Independence Day. Ride on Patriots.
