|The Brooklyn Bridge, I have no idea why Blogger|
uploaded these pictures in this order...
|I wish the stranger photographer with my camera had asked|
me to pull my shorts and tshirt down...just sayin...
|This is a shot of the middle of the bridge, notice the crowd|
grows at 10 am
|The OTHER side of the bridge, into Manhattan|
|Headin to the Hudson River Park Trail|
|This was a market just a block from the Hudson River Trail|
filled with children and parents...
|This was the first part of the Hudson River Trail...|
it's totally away from traffic except for some turn in's to
the piers along the way...
|This is one of several families we saw on the trail and|
in the farmers market....fun times! Chloe would love this!
|This was a tennis court we went by...and yes, I took|
most of these on the bike while riding, it was kinda
questionable at one point, but for being on the bike
from 10 am to 4 pm, it wasn't that bad and it was a
great workout, just sayin....
|This trapeze school reminded me of one of my favorite|
episodes of Sex in the City
|This building was on the edge of Central Park, home|
to Time Warner...I didn't see a celebrity but we weren't
there for long.....
|This is the lunch place we "happened upon", it had calorie|
counts on the menu, very interesting and it was delish!
|I believe this is Jackie telling me that it's safe to ride in|
traffic with cabs because of the green lane to his right,
and well, he was right. Totally safe, yes, I was
worried that I did not have my big, orange flag on my
cruiser, just sayin....
|This is another view I took from behind Jackie when we|
were at a stop sign...have I said it yet that 99% of my
photos were on my bike behind Jackie??
|This was on the other side of Times Square just before|
we headed back to the easy, Hudson River Park Trail
|This was going on as we passed by, looks like Yoga..|
good for them...what a fabulous, healthy choice!
|Another close picture of Times Square|
|This is the one of the new towers being built...it sits on the|
World Trade Center spot...the memorial is just blocks away
|This is Trinity Church that withstood the 911 disaster|
with little damage. It's an Episcopalian church built in
1697, that's not a typo, 1697 is correct. It was beautiful!
|I cannot make tacky comments but I want to about the|
GREED ON WALL STREET... I hope Chloe's college
money will be there for her 2019 freshman year...
|Holy Smokes, my camera taking photos....|
|This was a dog park near the Manhattan Bridge on the|
East River Park Trail....
|Jackie asked me to stop and take a photo of this|
First Chinese Presbyterian Church in Chinatown
|This is the bike trail over the Manhattan Bridge...an|
easy ride back over to Brooklyn
|This was Jackie's bike he used to cycle our 6 hour trip|
|My rented cruiser bike.....it was fabulous! And from|
Bike Brooklyn Bike Shop...who gave us GREAT
insight and tips. We loved ya'll!
|This joker was in Brooklyn just blocks from our|
FABULOUS RENTAL that was so affordable it
should have been a crime...I took this for Kyle....
|The view of our fabulous street in Brooklyn....|
|This was the end of our Brooklyn trip|
on the steps of our rental....
|This is the view heading over the Brooklyn Bridge|
at 10 am...
|This was some sort of wedding coming across|
from Manhattan to Brooklyn, we cracked up, the
lanes were not populated like later...BTW
|The closer we got to the middle, the bigger the crowd|
grew and at 10 am it looked like this crowd of people
were raising funds for a cause there.... I do love that...
This is a copy of my blog that I thought you cyclists would enjoy...

Jackie and I were in New York for a wedding of one of his roommates from Vanderbilt. Mark Bechtel and Elana tied the knot at the Brooklyn Historical Society. They live in Brooklyn, which was absolutely awesome. We toured around the city and had great times at many restaurants and stayed at a fabulous apartment on Lafayette Street. (More details to come) The rental had a bicycle that we took over to the city. I rented a cruiser from Bike Brooklyn and we spent 6 hours over in the city. MapMyRide said we biked 23 miles. It didn't feel that long because we were seeing the city. What a great way to see the city and use the bike lanes all over town! I took over 100 photos from the weekend and most of the photos I've shared on this post are from the bicycle behind Jharmon on the bike...not sure why Blogger isn't putting this all in the right place.....we'll see when it publishes...
