A few weeks ago, I shared the news that the New York City Dept. of Transportation had decided to install the city’s first-ever physically separated bike lane (a.k.a. cycle track).
Well, the bike revolution must have taken hold within the bureaucracy because they’ve already started the project.
Video activist extraordinaire Clarence Eckerson happened upon it yesterday and says, “I had to pinch myself when I ran into it today. Thank goodness I had a camera [watch his video below]. The DOT here is moving at such an accelerated pace it is hard for us to even keep up!”
His short video shows that New Yorkers are wasting no time in giving it a try…
One commenter on StreetFilms (where the video was first posted) said, “I can’t wait to go there and ride on it just because I can.”
