Blueberry apple crumb. It was pretty delicious.

Trip was fun, if cold and wet. Snowed Saturday, rained the rest of the time until Sunday evening. We made the best of it though, had a good time.

anybody try Citibike?
post #1851 of 7908
I'd actually give it a shot, except that there are no stations south of Atlantic in Brooklyn, which knocks out Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens, Park Slope, etc.

Curious to know what folks think if anyone has tried it.

There's a bike station about a hundred feet from me, but I don't think I'll ever use it. It's pretty pricey.

One point checklist for whether or not it's raining in New York:

1. Do I have to walk somewhere?

A: If "yes," then it's raining.

saw my first Citi bike out in the wild today (being ridden, not at a stand). I see its big advantage as going crosstown, since the blocks are long, the trains are scarce, and the busses blow.


also, i find it humorous how much the NY Post abhors the bike system.

Midtown is not exactly Alpe d'Huez

A guy on my softball team used the Citibike to get across town to make it to the game in time last night. Trying to take a bus would have been a nightmare.

Another friend of mine bought the year subscription and has ridden it half a dozen times already. She loves it.

the program is only in its infancy, and yet since the launch on Monday they've had nearly 35,000 rides (10K alone yesterday) and nearly 100,000 miles covered.

since I have no baseline to compare this to, I find it really impressive.

More Paris-Roubaix?

not even. Just city streets. The only rough part of today is the heat wave, which means a suit and a bike is not advised.
