Video: Biking in NYC

Wow!I would be just too scared to cycle among so many cars,and those guys do it so easily!I wish we could cycle like that here too,but the roads suck!If anyone tried it they would surely be dead...So lucky those countries who have nice roads...

Daim is right,but I think it's not entirely the governments fault...land isn't flat like in New York or Great Britain,or Sweden...Here we have so many hills and mountains,valleys are so rare,it is natural to have problems in constructing roads.

In any case,I would be really happy if we could cycle like that here...It's the most eco-friendly way to commute cute.gif

New York is one of few truly urban cities in US (New York, San Francisco and ... maybe Chicago). The rest of cities are horrendously designed. L.A., for example. A city that epitomizes the horrible evil destructive disastrous automobile culture. You need to drive in L.A. There is no other way to get around. It's like a big boring ugly suburb stretching out miles, miles and miles. Argh ... :yuck:

Bikes, especially fixed-wheel, give a certain level of control that is unmatchable once at a certain skill level.

 

Manuverability and speed are greatly enhanced by the very nature of the fixed-gear's direct power drive.

Scary at first, but everybody should give one a try!
