I’ve not been riding quite as much as I’d like these last couple of days, but we did manage a quick spin around the neighborhood yesterday:
And I also worked in a tri-borough Brompton Night Ride, which is something everyone should do now and again, as the city by night is always inspiring:
I hadn’t undertaken any long-distance Bromulations in a little while and in doing so was reminded what an agile and capable city bike it is, even with its handlebar bag loaded with sundries. The two-speed drivetrain is also ideal: you’ve got your crusing-down-the-avenues gear, and then you’ve got your riding-over-the-bridge gear. Speaking of riding over the bridge, as I approached mid-span on the Queensboro Bridge I noticed a number of cyclists were stopped and gazing out over the mighty Queens skyline:
So I joined them and was treated to a brilliant fireworks display:
What a racket.
