Maybe sports cycling isn't all there is?

Continuing the thread I started in the Helmets and Safety post that perhaps there is more to bicycling than sports, here is a very nice short video about New York City cycling I'd like to mention.  Imagine bicycling in a place where we know they drive worse than in Vermont.  Clarence Eckerson Jr. at Streetfilms put together a montage of the change in NYC infrastructure over the last several years.  And this film doesn't even mention the High Line because it is pedestrian, or Citybike.  Impressive.

I would be remiss if I didn't also mention Janette Sadik-Khan, head of NYC DOT:
