Emailing from the 2nd Avenue Bus

Ok, I'm doing this mostly for the coolness factor - I have a wireless email
device (Blackberry) and it appears as if I can update the blog from email.
So now I can post from anywhere!

Let me just say here now that I would bike to work if 2nd Aveune wasn't a
total death trap - cars flying in all directions, moving & delivery trucks
stopping short, minivans loading up kids (yes even in Manhattan). The buses
on the right side of the road make it nearly impossible for a biker to
operate in that lane and the left lane is pretty dangerous too, although
that's where the few, brave 2 wheelers seem to gravitate toward.

It's such a shame too, because my office is only 2 miles away from my
apartment. Then there are the storage parking, issues, etc. So even though I
live in a flat area where everything I need is only a few minutes by bike,
biking is really not too feasible.

But if you have the guts, here's a group that can help.

Hey there. Also take a look at Transportation Alternatives. They're trying to make the city more bike-friendly.
