BSNYC Friday No Quiz AGAIN Instead Let's Citi Bike!!!

In my efforts to scour every inch of this great metropolis by bike share (well, at least the gentrified parts, since that's where all the bike share stations are) so far I have been attacked by zombies wearing underpants:





By the way, here are the stats on this leg for all my fellow Cat 6-es out there:


I'm talking to Citi Bike about adding power output information to the account summary section of their website and I'll let you know how all that goes.

Oh, and if you're wondering #whatpressureyourunning, if you've ever ridden a Citi Bike you know the answer to that is ROCK FUCKIN' HARD.

Anyway, enjoy, ride safe this weekend, and I'll see you all back here next week for more truly transcendent bicycle-themed web-logging.

Your's ect.,

USA track cycling has leftside drive bikes. My rides have a lot of left turns, so this coukd be an advantage for the average road rider like me looking for some aerodynamic gains. Also for left-leg dominate riders.

NO QUIZ said...

I can haz kwiz?

Another lovely travelogue. But were there no cobblestones to go kicking down, feeling groovy?

I enjoyed the tale of the triumphant conclusion of your Citibike tour, Wildcat. You really got writerly in that piece.

I always considered it the 59th street bridge song bridge.

Lieutenant Oblivious said...

Nice finish to the triptych. "A Three Borough Tour" kind of reminded me of the Giligan's Island "three hour tour", glad the weather did not start getting rough since you had no movie star, millionaire, professor or Mary Anne. And "all built with a wish out of non-olfactory money." Is that the same as laundered money driving up real estate prices?

so how long will my luck last until i have to come here on friday and start failing quizzes again?

Hot as balls out. Sposed to be a little stome u du century outside later... well maybe some thunda storms but. Twill be an epic bus ride home later.

Taking a day off from the bikeride makes me feel like supa man the next day. Much less fatigue and etc. So yesterday (after not riding Weds.) I took the 59th St Bridge and had a great ride.
From Bay Ridge to midtown I come in the lazy way ... Manhattan Bridge, 11 miles. Home via the Wiliamsburg Bridge and around the Navy Yahd (in Amity, you say Yahd), 14 miles. But the new fun out of the way long way is over the EdKochBrothers/59th St/Queensboro Bridge 15.8 mi.
My usual times home are 50-55 min the lazy way, 1hr to 1:05min the Williburg Way and I just did 1hr:10 min home via the 59th St Bridge. On the map it looks so much more but it goes so fast. I think it's because the route has a lot of bike lanes.
But the good part of all this is a couple of months ago I was 252 - 255 pounds and just hit 235 last weekend. So there must be something to this bike stuff because I continue to eat like crap.

Seeing the Trump Tower climber, I just think of the Spider Pig theme song from the Simpsons Movie.
Now you can't get that shit out of your head !!! Bwwhhahahaha!

"ROCK FUCKIN' HARD."

- my answer to every question i'm ever asked, actually.

DB said...

Thanks, Wildcat. I was hoping for your tour of Queens to include Astoria, Sunnyside and La Guardia, then I realized there probably aren't any Citi bikes up there.
Hopefully, more Queens in a later installment.

Wildcat ROCK FUCKIN' HARD Machine the city should hire you to do it's marketing and promotional posters. You make New York look so nice someone might almost want to visit.

dop,

Isn't the 59th Street Bridge Song bridge "I'm dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep"?
Now I'm confused.

1904-

Not sure. It's nearing 5 pm on Friday & I'm looking forward to 21st amendment solutions.

This blog's resurrection of The 59th St Bridge Song made me wonder if that some sinners out there might think that JESUS was never groovy. Well, I just watched Godspell again and... PRAISE THE LORD!

I've never heard of boxed jews, but I know this place that sells rabbis by the ton.

Thank you for sharing

I'm very uncomfortable with the term 'boxed jews', it sounds like something Himmler would have come up with.

I can't believe no one's drawn a mustache on that somnambulist sculpture. Or at the very least, stuck a cigar in its mouth. Where have you gone Joe DiMaggio?

He blew his mind out in a car.

He didn't notice that the light had changed.

Nothing about any sailors.
