Night Rider


NYC the city that never sleeps, specially during the holiday times the traffic flow are higher than normal and not as safe to cycle around. For those who are avid bike commuters the cold weather nor the holiday season traffic will deter them from continuing to ride around the city. But for the others who enjoy cycling as form of freedom seeking or a therapeutic exercise, consider night riding.

An article from discusses the health benefits of cycling. Researchers have found that cycling works as a form of stress relief by releasing mood-lifting chemical like endorphins. Being that we live in a busy city such as new york, cycling in itself can be a very stressful experience. A cyclist in New york would have to be concerned with the cars and pedestrians of the busy new York City. But lucky even the city that never sleeps has a down time, and that’s late nights. If you’ve never considered before I would advice you give it a try, cycling at night. It’s one of the most relaxing experiences a bike enthusiast can get in NYC. The roads are mainly empty, the city bright light are beautiful to watch, and the less amount of people makes you feel like you have the entire city to yourself. So just the other day I went out in the middle of the night, with my camera in hope to capture the city in it’s quiet time, and some folks cycling in the night. I ended up keeping the focus on the Queens Borough Bridge as I got memorized by the city sight from that angle.
