Last Saturday we didn't have our bikes (they are in storage in Connecticut) but we still did a part of it (E 23rd St to Spring St). Brian rode his Dahon and I jogged pushing the kids in the stroller. Isabella scooted some of the time and sat on the back of Brian's bike the rest of the time. We had a great time. But I am dreaming of biking the whole thing soon!
New Yorkers: even if you don't have bikes you should still got to at least part of it. It is so fun to see the city from a whole new perspective (bring the camera). Whole Foods sponsors a block party with tons of free, yummy, organic food at E 24th & Park Ave. (Seriously, you can walk away with a weeks worth of Stonyfield yogurt, Organic Valley cheese, Odwalla juices, etc.) Other fun places to go: through the tunnel around Grand Central and on Spring St & Lafayette (there is a lot of fun stuff as well). Here's the route map.
Every year I dream about how I could saddle up all the kids and take them on frequent bike rides. We came across the Adams Trail-a-bike Tandem (super cool) last Saturday. And I still love the Zigo that I first saw last year!
