Spokes; new New York Times column

Cycling is increasingly popular in New York City. Strong advocacy groups like Transportation Alternatives, Times Up!, and Auto-Free New York help raise awareness and fight for better facilities. It also helps to have a supportive Department of Transportation with specific goals: "NYC DOT is currently installing bicycle lanes as part of its 3-year 200-lane-mile commitment which started in 2006; over 80 lane-miles have been installed to date. Completion of the City's 1,800-mile bicycle master plan is scheduled by 2030."

Recognizing the importance of bicycling in the city, the New York Times just started a new blog, Spokes. The first post is about getting your bike ready after for the road if it hasn't been ridden in a while. It includes a short video with some basic maintenance info.
