Councilwoman Melissa Mark-Viverito Tweeted that the new bike paths “are well on their way as confirmed by DOT.” That lanes all the way up to 125th could happen in the next year or so.
The DOT has little to say: “We continue to discuss this with the community, but at this time no determination has been made.”
Some suspect the DOT is vetting plans with local community boards. We are sure that Marcus Samuelsson and his Red Rooster bikes are rooting for them.
Stay tuned for more information.
If your’e anything like me you love to cycle. Now’s a great time to get in touch with an important resource. The Department of Transportation’s web site.
I includes any and everything you need. Including street scene live cams (Harlem based cams), maps, parking resources, even applications to request that commercial building owners let you park your bike on site! Check this and more out at their site.
Also remember that once a Summer NYC gives out free helmets – I got mine last year! Looks stylish and offers great protection too.
Also perhaps most importantly, don’t forget that if you happen to be biking in Harlem please stop by the bikeshop Modsquad.
