The Kindness Bicycle is Going Underground

August 18th, 2012

8-18-12 aQueens has the largest land area of all five boroughs of New York City. Travel by The Kindness Bicycle is going to be supplemented, somewhat, by the subway during my visits here. I am going to surpass the 4,000 mile total for The Kindness Bicycle Ride for Heroes by a projected 500 miles, so using the subway will become part of my travels for the next couple of weeks. Today’s subway ride from Brooklyn to Queens brought a full range of reactions, (apparently not many people take a Kindness Bike on the subway) from people asking if they could take photos with me, to people who wanted to know what was going on but didn’t ask.
My ride today took me to five Firehouses and one Police Precinct. Queens is a very friendly place, there was lots of foot traffic and car traffic with welcoming reactions. I am looking forward to my next two weeks here.
