Brooklyn Bike Share Demonstration Saturday

October 7, 2011

Based on my scientific research at last weekend’s bike share demonstration at Grand Army Plaza, I can confirm that every single person who took a test ride had an ear-to-ear grin as soon as they started pedaling.

There are more demos coming to Brooklyn next week, but get thee to Bed-Stuy this Saturday for your chance to go for a ride.

Restoration Rocks Music Festival: October 8th, 2011, 12:00 PM–4:00 PM

Party at Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration’s annual Restoration Rocks music festival and then take a break to test ride the bikes and provide feedback to our staff. Bikes will be on the south sidewalk on Fulton Street between New York Avenue and Marcy Avenue. In cooperation with Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration.

In addition to a list of upcoming demonstrations, DOT has smartly posted a schedule of bike share presentations to Community Boards through the beginning of November.

    Sure, it’s fine that the DOT is providing lengthy advance notice of public presentations to Community Boards, but we all know that those Boards are just “cover,” and that whatever “data” they present will have the consistency of Fudgy the Whale. And what if I only get my local news from the free papers at the Key Food (which I can drive to easily, unlike the Park Slope Food Cult)?

    If a bike share presentation happens in a crowded Community Board meeting, but I can’t drive there because it’s too hard to park, has it really happened?

    I don’t have a PhD like Louise does, but this sounds like confirmation bias to me.
