Hope you had a good Bike Month
Today when I walked out of my apartment I discovered that the neighborhood was filled with cyclists. A little research and I found out today was the culmination of Bike Month and there was a big to-do called "Tour Brooklyn."
The event, and month I guess, are supposed to promote bikes as an alternate form of transportation, but all I saw were people riding their bikes back to their cars and putting them on bike racks.
It's more like additional transportation rather than alternate--a yuppie biathalon. Drive your S.U.V. to Brooklyn, dismount, get on your bike and tour all the the neighborhoods that have been gentrified so far. Finish in time for a latte and win a smug sense of self-satisfaction!
