Back Soon…

May 1, 2011

By all measures the New Amsterdam Bicycle Show was a huge success.  When I turned the corner onto 22nd Street, bikes were locked to just about every available post and railing.  Inside, the show was really busy, with great displays from a wide variety of vendors selling everything from track bikes to townies.  Plus, how can you beat twenty-five-cent beer?  The entire show was a healthy sign of things to come for biking in New York City.  Many congratulations to Transportation Alternatives and the New York Press for pulling it off.  I hope it becomes an annual kick-off to Bike Month.

Personal highlights included meeting the people whose blogs I read religiously, including Marc from Amsterdamized and David from Bikehugger.  I was thrilled to meet Ann Lutz-Fernandez and picking up a copy of Carjacked.  The biggest highlight, though, had to be meeting so many people I follow on Twitter and finally getting to put faces to the handles.

I’m on a big deadline at work, so I’ll be on a light publishing schedule this week.  You can still find me over at Twitter, though.  If anything pops up, I’ll put up some random posts here and there — with Bike Month now underway there’s bound to be something to write about — but don’t expect much.  I’ll be back up and running here on May 9th.

In the meantime, don’t miss this great analysis of bike lanes in the New York Post…from Post readers.  Could the editors not find one letter in the ol’ mailbag from a raving lunatic willing to defend their editorial?  Was even Steve Cuozzo too busy to send an anonymous email?  Maybe this weekend was bigger for New York City cycling than I thought.

    Thanks for the update from NY Post readers, it’s nice to read something positive there! I thought the show was wonderful, and am also hoping it will be an annual event!

    The show was amazing — I was very sorry to miss the panel, but my husband and I woefully underestimated our 2.5 yr old’s bike related excitement and we were out of there pretty quickly. 🙂
