Two Wheel Tuesday

1a

Cheap, electric bicycles have made life a lot easier for New York City’s legions of restaurant delivery workers, but the party may be over in the New Year.

City officials are promising a crackdown on e-bikes, which may be loved by environmentalists and the often poor, immigrant workforce that relies on them, but are loathed by many drivers and pedestrians who think they are a menace.

Under city law, the bikes are legal to own and sell, but riding them on the street can lead to a fine of up to $500. Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio announced this fall that starting in 2018, businesses that have employees use the bikes are also subject to a fine of $100 for a first offense and $200 for each subsequent offense.

“Electric bikes are illegal to operate on city streets and those at the top of the food chain need to be held accountable,” city spokesman Austin Finan said. “Instead of merely targeting riders, we’re going after businesses that look the other way and leave their workers to shoulder the fine.”

    Of all the dumb-ass things to be chasing after ecologically responsible people while cabs, buses, and trucks have their way with our lungs. The riders are jeopardizing their lungs doing the fast peddle breathing exercise.

    Time to ban internal combustion engines inside the city not bicyclists.

      That was fantastic. I LOVE things like that. Think of the planning, the time spent in trial and error and the final set up. Wears me out just thinking about that.

    Doc, Quincy doesn’t watch movies, or any TV. He’s oblivious to it as and good dog should be. When I say he’s going to watch a movie w/ me, he’s actually dozing on the couch by me.

    Read some of your end of the world article yesterday. Nothing surprising, everything we all know but when each feature of mankind’s decline is spelled out like that, makes the scariest reading of the day. Oh, well. Can’t stop that freight train.

    Via the Black Cypress, which was closed, 27 minutes to the Old Post Office, which is open. Even my alley was plowed as were all the trails.

    Too many errands to do tomorrow.
