You could encounter partial path closures on the Williamsburg Bridge:

And make sure your lights are charged for the morning since we lost an hour yesterday:


On Thursday, March 14th, the "Cycling in the City" exhibit opens at the Museum of the City of New York, and on the 26th you can get a guided tour:

As part of the new Meet the Curators tour series, join Donald Albrecht, Curator of Architecture and Design, as he guides you through Cycling in the City: A 200-Year History. Park your bike outside and come inside to explore the complex, creative, and often contentious relationship between New York and the bicycle. Ask questions, give feedback, and learn something new with your fellow New Yorkers (or New Yorkers at heart) during this truly behind-the-scenes experience. 

I heard you even walk through the exhibit on a green "bike lane" that is periodically blocked by cars.

And as congestion pricing inches closer to reality like an SUV creeping towards the entrance to the Lincoln Tunnel, the op-eds are coming fast and furious:

The city Department of Transportation is the primary driver of the increasing congestion, creating ill-conceived bus lanes, bike ways and foolish no-turn signs, all of which have exacerbated traffic.

Wait, what's holding up traffic again?

Clearly it's that bike lane's fault.
