Bike to Work Day Open Thread

Happy Bike to Work Day, NYC. Here’s part of one light cycle at the Sands Street entry to the Manhattan Bridge bike path, footage courtesy of Doug Gordon. Imagine the traffic jam if all these people were in cars.

Clarence was out with his camera this morning at some of TransAlt’s commuter stations (thank you, early-rising TA volunteers and staff!), asking people whether they bike more now than five years ago — and if so, why. Incredibly, he says he can crank out a Streetfilm by noonish. Until then, this thread is yours to answer the “five years ago” question and share your BTWD observations.
