Despite the 18 degree temperature, 16 brave soles (hah hah, I meant “souls”, though our soles were brave, too), including 2 children!, came out for Saturday morning’s (3/21) ride in support of bike lanes on Euclid Ave. That’s only slightly less than 1 cyclist per degree fahrenheit! Wait until it gets warmer. Starting at the corner of Euclid and Westcott, we rode west on Euclid, following the cycle track that begins at Comstock down Waverly and University, and continuing on the bike lanes on E. Genesee to Almond St., where we turned around and retraced our path back to the start. Some of us then joyfully commiserated over hot drinks and snacks at the Mello Velo Cafe. Members of BikeCNY were among riders from BikeEuclid, SEUNA, WNA, and ESF who also came out to show their support.
