nyc / cycling in central park


biking broadway, new york city 2011 from marta on Vimeo.

one of the best activities in nyc was renting bikes to see the sights in central park on saturday afternoon. an unexpected thrill was the fact that we had to bike up a few blocks–on broadway–to actually get to the park. thank goodness for a sizeable bike lane! there were twelve of us. my in-laws are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year (congratulations!!) and biking with their children is one of their all-time favorite pastimes. thanks to cameraman dan for capturing the moment (and for not dropping my camera)!

watch for...
the dave letterman theater
fresh fruit stand on the sidewalk.
riding the opposite way in said bike lane.
blooming pink trees in central park! 
remembering how to road bike. am glad i survived.
dan and i trying to take a snapshot while camera was still in movie mode.
jogger in central park running faster than me on a bike. 
twelve smiling cyclists.

bike rentals / cycle cafe / 250 W 49th St (between Broadway & 8th Ave)

a few of my favorite bloggers post vacation videos, which i love. they inspired my own vacay video post. this was my first attempt to create / edit a home movie–aside from baby benji clips. i am excited to explore imovie a bit more. i have a lot to learn! perhaps there will be more martamovies in the future.

tune in tomorrow for my final nyc trip highlights post.

Cool video. This sounds dumb, but I would not have guessed there was enough room on a NYC street for a huge two-way bike lane! The pink trees were fabulous. What a beautiful place!

Love the video. You did a great job! That is the funnest. Made me feel like I was able to enjoy just a little bit of the big New York city along with you.

p.s. That snapshot of you and Dan while the camera was still in movie mode was the cutest thing ever. I love it!

This just made my night.

I wanted to do a bike tour while we were in Austria last fall but I couldn't get everyone to go. Boo.

You look super cute and I love when people wave at the camera and smile.
