Commuting to Work

So this morning Tiiu tells me that Liam is on Spring Break. Spring Break? He's three and a half and he has Spring Break? Crap that's costing me $152.32 for one day of school. So now I don't have to drop him off at school and because my wallet is missing (later find out Liam hid it under his bed) I've got no money to get to work so I decide to ride my bike to work.

Crossing the Brooklyn Bridge - slight rise a little harder on my Electra Amsterdam than on my Prince. I figure I'm doing a solid 220 Watts right now

Accross the Brooklyn Bridge and by the court houses and government buildings in lower Manhattan

4th Avenue clear and hugging the middle lane. That can't be safe.

Park Avenue with Grand Central in the distance. Almost there and no problem so far
A couple of close fits but all in all maneagable
Almost at Grand Central

Hello there. Little cyclist on the road. My lane. Not that most cars care

Good Morning fellow comutter.

Safe at the office. The last time I commuted to work my bike got stolen. Let's see if this time its safe.
