Weekend Weather

And if cool and crisp is your thing you'll also want to heed the Brooklyn Brewery Weekend Beer Forecast and stock up on plenty of...

Brooklyn Brewery

...Brooklyn Lager!

Brooklyn Lager

It’s the start of holiday party season, so you’ll need something that can please a crowd. Count on Brooklyn Lager to satisfy everyone from your crafty friends to your “whatever’s in the fridge” friends. It’s smooth and flavorful, ready for anything, and boasts a seasonally appropriate green can that you can totally say you picked on purpose.

Now, as I alluded to, this is my final Bike Forecast...not just for the year, but indefinitely.  Yes, all good things must come to an end, including that crate of Brooklyn Lager you just bought.  In light of this, let's zoom out and look at the long-term forecast for cycling in New York City.  Oh sure, we've got our problems:

But change is on the horizon:

And with the passage of the Streets Master Plan, the success of the 14th St. busway, the very real possibility that we'll get our very own Bike Mayor, and innumerable other victories, there's no doubt bikes in New York City are on the ascendant:

Of course this is in no small part due to the indefatigable efforts of Transportation Alternatives, who have also been gracious enough to let me pilot the Bike Forecast since March of 2017--so with the holidays upon us please show your appreciation and renew your support.

Thanks to TransAlt, and thanks very much for reading.  Please feel free to drop by my blog or my Twitter at any time, and please listen to my radio show on WBAI on Mondays at 10am.  I hope you'll stay in touch.

In the meantime, have a great holiday, keep supporting TransAlt, and most importantly--keep riding!
