Things they don’t tell you when you take up road cycling (a thread)

1- you will go numb in places you didn’t think were capable of such a thing. Girls, I’m talking intimate, boys, I’m talking Johnson.

2- you must fuel! Also, hitting the wall is called bonking. I’m a child. Every time someone says they’re bonking, that’s me laughing.

3- flies. Actually no, they’re not flies, they’re bullets. Today has been the day of the black beetle... oh my word do they hurt! If I hadn’t been wearing glasses, I’d be blind. Good protein though. Must have eaten thousands.

Dear @SenKennedy & @BillMagnarelli: Congratulations on becoming Chairs of your houses in the #NYSLegislature. Some thoughts to keep in mind when making policy. (cc @BikeNYBC @transalt @StreetsblogNYC @NYC_SafeStreets)

1) Transportation choices are shaped by public policy.
2) We need to give people safe, convenient transportation choices. Example, loads of people want to cycle places, but they're #2scared2bike.
3) Transportation is the #1 cause of injury death for kids and #2 for adults. But it doesn't have to be this way. Mortality rate in Netherlands is 1/4 of ours. That's because of good engineering (#VisionZero, transit, etc).

I've started carrying around a bike helmet just in case I need to take a @jumpbikes somewhere (it's often faster than Uber pool/Lyft shared or MUNI during rush hour). Would love one I can just tuck into my backpack. Looked up collapsible bike helmets on Amazon (1/3)
But they're all SUUUUPER expensive (~$140-170). Anyone know why this is? Definitely seems like there'd be more of a market for this with bike/scooter shares.… #Bike #BikeShare (2/3)
Awesome to not have to lug a bike around, but it's not really a feasible last mile option if you don't always have a helmet with you. An easily collapsible/storable helmet would solve this better than a helmet that comes with bikes/scooter (fit issues, might be dirty, etc) 3/3
