I clocked up 1500 miles / 2400 kms on the bike for 2011 yesterday. That make my total for the last 2 years over 3000 miles / 4800 kms and $607.50 saved in subway fares. #bikenyc

‎10 years ago I was on a flight from Hawaii to San Jose, CA when the first plane hit the WTC. We were lucky we were allowed to land. Watching events unfold in the office it was clear I wasn't going to make the NY leg of my trip and set about letting concerned family know I was OK. 18 months later I moved to NYC.

New personal best on the bike!. 30.91 kms (19.21 miles) in 1 hour & 90 seconds with an average speed of 30.15km/h (18.73 mph). On vacation with Melissa J Renda, Ella and Mum at Bald Head Island.

Cousin Tom Jonas had his first AFL game with Port last night and had the task of playing on All Australian and Hawthorn captain Luke Hodge. By all accounts he had a very good game although Port got pumped. I was in a hotel room in South Hill, Virginia travelling down to North Carolina for a holiday with Mum.

Big milestone. Clicked past the 4000km mark since I began bicycle commuting from Brooklyn to Manhattan for work in March 2010. To mark occasion my route today in the pouring rain and with a slowly deflating tire was http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msa=0&msid=215970260195444798716.0004a9a218f40555bd349 (via the excellent Dah Shop in Chinatown to re-inflate the tire). I've also put together a visualisation of my rides using +Dave Shea 's excellent Elevation tool - http://www.flickr.com/photos/hartley/6000389154/sizes/l/in/photostream/

+Dave Shea Here is an Elevation view of my My Tracks captured commuting and riding around Brooklyn and NY. I'll post to Flickr and add some comments but the loop on the bottom left is Prospect Park in Brooklyn, The heavy line angling upwards and to the right in the middle is Manhattan Bridge and then off to the right is the East River Parkway in Manhattan. The elevation profile gets all funky around where I commute to which is roughly 47th Street between Lexington and Park Avenue.
