Brooklyn News

November 4th, 2009 by Ted

I’m a daily bicycle commuter and enthusiast that promotes cycling whenever I can. This past summer, I had connected with a grassroots organization called FixCity.org after hearing about their efforts to get more bike racks installed in Brooklyn. Just yesterday, I was asked to participate in a TV spot for the website. Here are the results!

FixCity.org combines two of my favorite things: bikes and the internet. Its a website that allows users to suggest new bike rack locations by posting an address and a photo of the suggested location onto the website’s map. The data is sent over to the Department of Transportation and helps them plan their next install locations. The creators of the Fixcity.org are based in New York City and are currently running a pilot program of the site in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg and Greenpoint neighborhoods, also known as the ‘epicenters’ of NYC bicycling.

    Tedbot’s quote is heelarrious!!!

    btw, WHY would it take 6 months to install some bike racks? You’d think they’d be able to take down some information and send out some bros to install them within a REASONABLE amount of time.

    Good point Larry.
    I think the slow moving elephants called city governments need some help!

    Ted is going to surf the internets on his Macbook whether there are bike racks or not.
