Note the green BIKE ROUTE signs over his right shoulder and the pavement markings behind him...That's our new NYC Greenway that now goes all the way around Manhattan!  We are VERY proud of this wonderful addition to our cycling universe.  The ride is about 30 miles long and it is a pure pleasure. Time's-Up! is developing an organized group ride for this route and I think that, without exaggeration, it belongs on the New York City must do list, right behind the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building. I want to call it The Manhattan Circle Line Ride because it follows the same route as that famous boat ride, the big difference being that you are riding THROUGH what the tourists on the boats are looking AT from mid channel! This...is a wonderful thing...and bring a camera!  You will never forget this ride.  It is special in all of the world.
