Post Hurricane Cycling Surge
Ok, this will be the last (I think) hurricane Sandy related post from me, but with that said, bikes have really had their time in the spotlight when the flooded streets became problematic for cars, gas stations ran on empty and the lights went out all over town. Simple mechanics took center stage and gave power, sometimes literally, to a wide swath of East Coasters. With that in mind, I’ve compiled a handful of news articles that give more detail on the benefit of bikes post-Sandy.
