eddiemoy Posted July 18, 2017 Share Posted July 18, 2017 I had a chance to ride about ~6 miles to training in NYC each way today. In the morning, I rode it up 1st Ave, someone in a BMW X5 almost ran me over when he tried to make a light to turn left. He came to screeching halt and I had to push away from him with both hands on his driver door. But I didn't fall amazingly and just did a slalom around him. I was riding in the bike lane. Lots of people riding bikes to work. I followed behind them. I found my legs were not all that steady today probably too nervous, like spaghetti. Most people didn't even bat an eye when they saw I was riding. I like that most NYC folks don't care. LOL. Had some trouble going cross town on 42nd Street. There was no bike lane. I was able to follow a biker to Lex, then I was all alone trying to cross to 5th Ave. I rode on the sidewalk a little bit, but it was so crowded. The second time was when I was coming back down from midtown on 2nd Ave. Towards the midtown tunnel, the bike lane becomes a turning lane. Another car came inches to hitting me. Again, I was in the bike lane all the way down, following bikers. I got a few looks from bikers going the other way. A few kids screamed out it was so cool. A guy tried to ask me something as I blasted by. It was a fun, but dangerous ride. Now I know what bicyclist face everyday in NYC. 12 miles and still 70% battery left. Pretty cool!
