’Tis the Season for Biking

Despite the spring showers, there’s sunny news for Brooklyn bicycle riders. The Brooklyn Paper reports new lanes for bicyclists and a walking path will be built along Kent Avenue and West Street in Greenpoint. The continuous greenway would stretch nearly three miles, and provide safe passage along one of the neighborhood’s most heavily trafficked avenues. It’s the latest installment in the bike lane building boom, part of Mayor Bloomberg’s long-term green vision to paint 1,200 new miles of bike lanes. 

It’s easy to find the bike lanes in your neighborhood on NYC Bike Maps, part of the great links collected on BPL’s Bicycling in NYC webpage. You’ll find everything from resources and repairs to history and safety tips. So pump up those tires, grab your helmet, and I’ll see you on the road.
