The Little Things in Life

I was heading to Long Island City and was grumbling in anticipation about the very brief wrong way under the bridge to get under the 7 tracks on 23rd Street. That short block was two-way till about a year or so ago.

Well I'll be damned if they haven't put in a little painted bike line going the other direction. It may small, but it's the thought that counts. And it actually does makes all the difference to make biking just a little more pleasant!

 Here's a picture not from the OK old days or the good new days, but the more recent, bad days:


Now there's a bike lane on the right, where the cars were. Talk about win-win!

Also, David Byrne has a nice pro-bike piece in the Times today. I'm always surprised that his writing isn't better than it is, but he's still good for the cause.
