I Love Riding in the City

NAME: Kristina AKA Superkat


OCCUPATION: Cosmic Pupil Of The Universe

Where do you live and what’s it like riding in your city?

I am an NYC girl, born and raised. I’ve been hitting the streets on two wheels since I was a kid. Now as an adult I’m seeing all the turmoil created for cyclists. I like to think of myself as the bike ambassador for the Bronx. There aren’t many female riders out here (due to safety mostly) so I like to think I’m showing them there’s no reason not to.

Why do you love riding in the city?

It’s a great way to get around the neighborhood. You save money and lose weight. What can be better? You see so much you wouldn’t from a bus or train when you’re on a bike. Since I blog I also take massive amounts of pictures while out on rides. I swear it is the only way to really see the beauty of NYC.

Or just say whatever you want about riding in the city… Poetry anyone?

It can get depressing since NYC is such a “car city.” But I wouldn’t stop for anything, I’ll continue to be a positive influence on the streets of this city, along with the great cycling community out here! Being involved with the bettering of the bike lifestyle is very fulfilling and rewarding.
