Make me more comfortable with biking

You started biking later in life, and you did it in a big city. How did you become comfortable biking on roads with cars? I'm kind of freaked out by this. [more inside]

How do cyclists get along with laws outside of the US?

I recently found myself in the midst of some bike politics in NYC, and one of the adjunct arguments of the anti-bike crew goes something like "people on bikes are assholes who never follow laws." What's the relationship between cyclists and road laws in countries that aren't the US (or bike-ly-unusual parts of the US)? [more inside]

Best route for overland commute in NYC

I live at the top of Central Park in New York City (my park entrance is at 110th and Lenox), and I'm thinking of either getting a bike or rollerblades to commute to my job at 23rd and Fifth (or, perhaps more accurately, to my gym at 23rd and Park, where I can shower and change). What's the most direct path through the park from top to bottom, and which streets should I take to my destination once I exit the park? [more inside]

NYC: Tourism and Cycling tips?

NYC filter: What sort of fun cycling type things can I do when I'm in New York City (and/or NY state) for a few days this June (15th-19th sort of time)? Are bikes a good way of seeing the city? It will be my first time in the U.S. I like road bikes.

five boro bike ride

Thinking about doing the five-boro bike ride in NYC this year. I'd like to hear experiences, opinions & advice from anybody who's done it. Is it too crowded to be fun? What kind of shape do I need to be in? What should I bring? How long will it take to finish?
