Hubb and I experienced our first ever Summer Streets today! How freeing and liberating it was riding the streets of NYC absolutely car-free, along with fellow cyclists, walkers, skaters, and a few other crazy contraptions on wheels!
There were five rest stops along the way, I met some great chicks who work with some major organizations here in NYC, who were of course bikers! Scored some SWAG too…gotta love free shit!
Even water stations, and free bike valet parking!
NYC's fav bike shop was host to Dimitry Gudkov(the mastermind behind the BikeNYC portrait project). Dimitry was offering FREE bike portraits to all who came out for Summer Streets!! Naturally, being quite the proud owner, I relished at a chance to get our pic taken!
D turned out be so cool! And he dug my bike
Continuing along I spot all types of Lady Bikers, cruiser riders, babies, pets, families of tandems, and a few head-scratching vehicles:
It was great seeing how many people showed up:
Back home in the Bx, we visit our bike shop, and Sandra Dee receives her first tune-up! she's been getting a lot of use lately, and wanna keep her in tip-top shape
