Bicycling Safely: 2

Just another little bicycling observation. In a city this congested and with pollution, I applaud cyclists willing to brave the road–but this is taking it a little bit too far. These two were spotted in a different neighborhood as the previous post and yet riding just as idiotically as the others. In case you can’t quite grasp what’s happening here, the woman is seated on the handlebars and leaning backward agains her mail companion who is both pedaling and steering.  They are in a real street, with real cars. Yes, the traffic was very light, but still. seriously. 

About clarissa

I'm a girl from Texas living in New York since October 2010. I fell in love with New York City on a business trip here in April 2009. I had to drag my husband along for the ride at first but just a few hours on his own while I was at the conference and he was completely on board. He began texting me mundane things like the price of milk and the quality of produce so that I could see it wasn't so much different than Austin. What are the chances that after just one week in New York two people would leave with the exact same resolution to one day live there? We did. Just about 18 months later we signed a lease on a new apartment and started a new chapter in our lives. This blog will hopefully give me a chance to document our adventures in New York as well as to share my perspective on the same using photos and stories. enjoy.
