Today, I did it -- biked all 5 boroughs of New York, yes all 42 miles with 30,000 cyclists riding car free through the highways, byways and city streets of this Awesome city.
It's a relatively ride (lots of stop and go) through Manhattan, The Bronz, Queens, Brooklyn and yes, Staten Island.
Yes the gorgeous, monumental views of NYC appearing over my handlebars.
-- Incredible experience. Jim met me the night before as I spent the night sleeping in my car in Staten Island. And the finish festival was fantastic at Fort Wadsworth on Staten Island. Then I drove to Brooklyn to have dinner at Medgar Evers College -- doing the prep work for my Boss to speak there tomorrow -- What a wonderful experience and an inspiring message he delivered. Great weekend -- met with family -- saw NY City from my 18-speed hybrid, and participated in a great event laced with a wonderful message of inclusion and inspiration.
