A Tale Of Two Bicycle Rides Around Roosevelt Island - One A Leisurely Trip With With A Mambo Beat The Other At High Speed Rock And Roll Pace

A bicycle tour of Roosevelt Island from last summer

and earlier this year.

Be great if NYC's Citi Bike Sharing program would come to Roosevelt Island.

But some have issues riding over the Roosevelt Island Bridge.

If you are too chicken to ride over the grate you can always get off and push your bike across on the sidewalk. It seems getting off your bike and pushing it is something unthinkable for many cyclists.

Alternatively, the DOT could fill in the grating on the bridge bike paths. It is a little unsafe to ride a bike on that grating.

Of course. That is not going to happen anytime soon, if ever. So, we can keep complaining or just adjust.

There usually is an accumulation of gravel in the bike lanes (east and west) between the bridge and Vernon Boulevard. Is it RIOC or DOT that should sweep the lane clear? I've posted to RI 311 often to remind RIOC.
