Rangers New Center is Happy to Be Back on His Bike

11:08 AM EDT on October 18, 2007


No more double-parking in front of the net or on bike lanes around Madison Square Garden.

Traded from Los Angeles, Sean Avery, the Rangers new center, tells the New York Times Magazine why he enjoys playing in the Big Apple:

Home away from home: Before the Rangers, I played for the LosAngeles Kings, and I bought a place in Laurel Canyon. I love going therefor vacation. It’s just a healthy, soulful place. The house is, like, a hippiehaven from the ’70s; it’s a small cottage with a big backyard.

Greatest hockey moment: Getting traded to New York.

Best thing about New York: I've learned to ride my bike again.

Maybe Sean could have a quick chat with Tiki and Jeter about the joys of New York City cycling.
