Unlucky Strike: My New Commute


To get to work during the strike, I’ve been biking over the Manhattan Bridge. Flatbush Avenue has been a parking lot yesterday and today, but on my trusty Bike Friday, traffic is not an issue.Cold, however, is. I don’t have fancy all-weather gear, so I’m pretty grunged-up with layers of t-shirts, fleeces, and long underwear. By the time I get to the office, I’m cold and sweaty. Today, it took me a full two hours to defrost.On the brighter side, I’m getting some much-needed exercise. And because so many people are using the bridges now, it’s also a nice communal experience.(Manhattan Bridge)More Transit Strike:Unlucky Strike!More Manhattan Bridge:On The NOvercast/Manhattan BridgeDriving On The Manhattan Bridge
