Hey for those #bikenyc on Skillman & 43rd Avenues: tomorrow I'll be out filming the lanes for a @Streetfilms from 730-930am. Would love to talk to anyone out there. Will likely stage myself at Skillman & Honeywell crossing over the rail yards at 815-915am. Say hello be on camera!— Streetfilms (935 videos!) (@Streetfilms) November 7, 2018

In other news, a delivery app proves something you already knew, which is that in cities bikes are faster than cars:
That bicyclists are faster in cities will come as no surprise to bicycle advocates who have staged so-called “commuter races” for many years.

The Deliveroo stats are significant because they have been extracted from millions of actual journeys.
Just don't let Mayor Doofus catch you on an ebike.
Finally, the local TV news is picking up on the Citi Bike shortage:
Which appears to be particularly acute in Queens:
According to Bike Angel notices, 52 of the 59 @CitiBikeNYC docking stations north of the Queensboro Bridge currently need bikes. The vast majority have no bikes at all, and five of the seven stations with bikes are within two blocks of the Bridge. #bikenyc— Rob Trucks (@eyeglassesofky) November 7, 2018
Maybe the Bicycle Enforcement Unit put them in the shredder.
