I Love Riding in the City

Where do you live and what’s it like riding in your city?
I live and ride in New York City. I am currently a bike messenger for Breakaway Courier. I love riding here! Something is always happening around you, it never gets boring. Streets are crazy, cabs are crazy and pedestrians are crazy.
The family of cyclists here is amazing. Everyone looks out for each other on the streets. A simple head nod to cheers each other bombing down 5th Ave. It’s a tight family of people who enjoy life and what they do for a living.
I used to live and work in Pittsburgh, and the cycle community there is pretty awesome, as well. Though I have to say, I don’t miss all the hills. Big “high fives” out to all my amazing friends back home!
