Excitement for Cyclists

Avenue B

Yes, the city’s bike share program has been delayed, but here’s some good news if you’re already riding: Gothamist notes that the fancy new bike paths on Allen Street from Hester to Delancey are open after months of construction, and they’ll soon be extended. We’ve also noticed that Avenue B, which for some time was perilously bumpy (seriously: there were smoother roads in “The Hurt Locker”), was recently paved over with fresh asphalt, meaning you can finally traverse it without spilling that iced coffee from Ninth Street Espresso. Whee!
