The bikelash must stop. End the NYPD ticket blitz in Central Park. Sign the petition.
This is the 78th Precinct, which has a long history of harassing cyclists at Brooklyn Critical Mass events. This sounds, judging from the unmarked car, to be the work of Community Affairs Officer Jerry. You may call him at (718) 636-6410 to voice your concerns over the treatment of cyclists, and come out last Tuesday of every month at 7:30 p.m. at the 78th Precinct station house (6th and Bergen, 4th Fl), for the Precinct Community Council a "non-partisan group which meets with police officials to exchange mutual views and seek ways to solve local problems."

I strongly urge every cyclist who has the means, to attach at least one video camera to their bike, preferably multiple cameras. And keep them rolling when you're riding because cops LIE. Contrary to what their mothers told them.
Unbelievable. I'd really like to add this situation to my archive of harassment on my blog. I've been documenting incidents since the NYPD crackdown was officially called out early January. http://www.bikeblognyc.com/nypd-crackdown-on-cyclists/ Could you just tell me the date and time this occured. Thanks Michael Green, email@example.com
Thanks for the suggestion!
When Wal-Mart opens in Brooklyn later this year, we suggest you don't shop there.
Meanwhile, some of us want a Wal-Mart in Williamsburg!
Does anyone know when registration will be open for the half?
Also, I hate to make this correction, but it ends in Coney Island, not Brighton Beach. So Nathan's hotdogs, knishes, and ice cream, but no pierogis are immediately available. Also, you get to ride the famous Cyclone and/or the rides at Luna Park when you're finished!
They haven't announced the date yet. The guess is it will be the weekend of May 21-22.
I can't find out anywhere WHEN the 2011 Brooklyn Half is. Any idea?
