NY Century Bike Tour

I just saw that the NY Century Bike Tour is going to be on September 11th. Whatever your point of view on what motivated a small group of well funded Islamic radical terrorists from Saudi Arabia, it is hard to ignore the role that our dependence on foreign oil played.

This is a great way to highlight the growing numbers of bikers in NYC who are making a difference in making NYC a less fossil fuel dependent and more environmentally friendly and sustainable place. You might also meet some nice people and lose a few pounds in the process.

I know the person who runs the Century, and I'm glad that you are appreciative of the symbolism here, since I think she's worried that having it on that date is going to turn people off. But it always has to be the same Sunday of September, and this year just happened to be the 11th.

Bloombergs cops busted more "critical mass" riders the other day. I think these two groups need to sit down and talk. There are issues on enforcement being too vigorous like the RNC last summer when Bloomberg's NYPD acted like The Original Mayor Daley in Chicago or the out of control Guiliani's Kerik & Safir thugs! The bikers have real issues and my total respect, they are part of the solution. Bikes and mass transit are the way to a less oil dependent future.
