The 2014 Five Boro Bike Tour, NYC.

Here is a video I put together of one of the most enjoyable things I've done in a very long time:

Two Sundays ago, on May 4th, I traveled down to New York City with two mates from Cambridge, Craig Kelley and Tim Rowe, to participate in the Five Boro Bike Tour, an event that is exactly what it sounds like - a bike-based jaunt through all five boroughs of New York City, starting in Battery Park in lower Manhattan and ending up on Staten Island.

We were joined by other Cambridge people as well, including Patty Nolan, David Rabkin and Trish Marti, and assorted kids from our group.

I doff my cap to Craig and Tim for getting us there, and to the organizers (Bike New York), corporate sponsors (TD Bank, REI) and the countless volunteers who made the day so flawless, for us and about 32,000 other riders.

I hope you'll watch (and listen) with enjoyment as we make our way around all five boroughs. Nothing in my recent memory matches the pleasure of this experience.
