Today's bike trip: Under 3 bridges, round the Battery
By Dave Winer on Thursday, August 12, 2010 at 10:37 AM.

A picture named bike2.gifHere's the trip report on EveryTrail. 10.0 miles. 1.25 hours. permalink

I wish there was a way to tell it not to automatically display the pictures or the neat moving graph. I just want to show the map and nothng more.  permalink

I rode up 8th Ave, cross town on 20th, joined the East River bike trail at Stuyvesant Point, went under the Williamsburg, Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges, South Street Seaport, round the Battery, up the Hudson and across the Village.  permalink

There were signs of heavy rain most of the route, but I never got more than a few drops.  permalink

The heat wave is over, it's in the mid-70s. Perfect riding weather. permalink

The pedestrians are the worst in Battery Park City, sometimes blocking the whole super-wide path with dogs and baby carriages, not moving. The best bike trail is just north of there, betw the top of Battery Park and 46th St. It's a straight shoot the whole way.  permalink

Today the leg pain and tiredness are gone, endorphins flowing make me happy! :-) permalink
