Don't worry, you can still go to the Bike Home from Work Party even if home for you isn't Brooklyn, and even if you don't work. In fact that's all the more reason to attend, because it's free. (Though you should donate anyway if you can.)
As for the weekend, there could be some thunderstorms
And the Brooklyn Brewery Weekend Beer Forecast calls for...
With beautiful weather mixed with a chance of more storms ahead, we’re recommending you pack your own sunshine with Brooklyn Sorachi Ace. This bright, citrus-forward saison can fend off the storm clouds and celebrate blue skies so you’re ready for anything. Just remember to take cover if we get more hail—this beer doesn’t need ice.
If you do head out to the beach this weekend, expect to see more ebikes:
You’ll be seeing those green bikes through September as Lime has announced that it will extend its Rockaway e-bike pilot program through the summer and into September.
In addition, Lime will be gradually increasing the number of e-bikes in the Rockaways from 400 to 600.
And if your commute takes you down 5th Ave., expect to see less road surface:
Wondering how the LPI head start pilot is working out?
Last year we added “🚲 use ped signal” signs at 50 intersections allowing #bikenyc to use Leading Pedestrian Interval's as a pilot program, thanks to @cmenchaca— NYC DOT (@NYC_DOT) May 30, 2019
Results are in: LPI head starts offer safe & effective protection for pedestrians & cyclists. https://t.co/1n2oJRS5uf pic.twitter.com/d42ifDm0C8
Well, here are the results:
If you're not fluent in charts, that means "It works good."
Meanwhile, in Brooklyn, Community Board 11 is fully in favor of bike lanes, just as long as none of them are within Community Board 11:
"Marnee Elias-Pavia, district manager of Community Board 11, says the board is not opposed to bike lanes," but it's opposed almost every single bike project that's ever been proposed.— Bike South Brooklyn! (@BikeSouthBklyn) May 30, 2019
P.S. @NYC_DOT stop looking to bike opponents for bike safety advicehttps://t.co/JsTaB4vgv4
And The City has more on Brooklyn CB1's sweet new RAV4:
ICYMI: “This is a city vehicle. I have my own car. I don’t need this car. We use less than $200 worth of gas a year.”— claudia irizarry aponte (@clauirizarry) May 30, 2019
The latest on the CB1 SUV saga, now with @fractenberg, for @THECITYNY https://t.co/m4bzfQaPJM
“The borough president has meetings at night at Borough Hall — the chair has to go,” he said.
“How does she get there? I take her. I’ve been driving the chair for 42 years … whoever the board is, they’re volunteers. How do they get to where they wanna go? I’m not going to parties.
“This is a city vehicle. I have my own car. I don’t need this car. We use less than $200 worth of gas a year,” added Esposito, who earned $123,535 last year for the CB1 job.
Uh, the fact he doesn't need it is exactly the point.
Some might argue the same is true of community boards.
Finally, don't lock your bike in the hallway:
Too bad they don't mention what kind of lock it was, because that's a pretty good endorsement.
