You may remember that bicycling took the place of mechanized boxes as our choice of sustainable transportation during the No Impact project. In fact, we're still loving our bikes.
Anyway, once a year, Transportation Alternatives, which advocates taking the New York City streets from the cars and giving them to the people, runs its commuter challenge--bike vs. car vs. transit. Personally, I think they made the route unfairly challenging for the transit rider this year, but see for yourself (if you get this by email and can't see the video, click here to come watch it on the blog).
[Bad luck for us, because I just heard from StreetFilms, who made this video, that they are maintaining their site this morning (Wednesday, June 11). They say that it will be up and working by noon, though, so if you find you can't watch it now, watch it then.]
