New York is the Big Apple
Arriving in New York and seeing it by bicycle is really cool. Mark had been here before on bicycle and he was our guide.New York has put in many bike lanes and has many bike paths. Most noticeably were the signs that said a $350 fine for honking. We did not have the annoyance of an eager taxi driver bearing down on us. We visited the Statue of Liberty, Ground Zero, Central Park, Grand Central station, Wall Street, Ellis Island. We also saw all the famous bridges of New York, the Empire State Building. Our whistles were wet at McSorley's, the oldest ale house in New York. We road the subway and felt very comfortable getting around the city both by bike and subway.
We had the goal of getting seen on the Today show and we were seen 3 times by our loyal fans back in Iowa.
