Happy Bike to Work Day, NYC

Well, you really couldn’t ask for a better day to commute by bike. Here’s a shot from the Brooklyn side of the Manhattan Bridge at 8:30 this morning. Word is that the Hudson River Greenway was a torrent of bike traffic. If you’ve got pictures from today’s commute, share them with us: add the “Streetsblog” tag on Flickr or email tips@streetsblog.org.

Many thanks to the Transportation Alternatives volunteers who got up before the crack of dawn to supply people with coffee and Clif Bars. You guys are great.
