Things I saw on the Hudson River Greenway today: people on roller blades, roller skates, skateboards, longboards, hover boards, razor scooters, electric scooters, road bikes, cruiser bikes, citi bikes (so many citi bikes), cargo bikes, and electric bikes.
I saw people who were old, young, fit, fat, wearing a suit and tie, wearing dresses, wearing full spandex, wearing helmets, not wearing helmets, on their way to school and work, making deliveries, riding for fun and riding for fitness. I even saw a badass woman riding with her foot in a cast.
When people have access to safe spaces to ride, THEY DO. Protected bike lanes make cycling accessible to people of all ages and abilities.
