There are a lot of people spinning their wheels in New Haven these days. Literally, as more people than ever are riding bikes not just for recreation but as their primary means of transportation. To be sure, recreational riding is as popular as ever, but it’s the workaday people who strap on a helmet, roll up their right pant leg and straddle a cycle who are changing the look and feel of New Haven’s streets. That’s just the way they roll.
Though New Haven has neither cracked Bicycling’s list of the top 50 cities nor received even a bronze medal from Bicycle Friendly America—a national ranking and award by the League of American Bicyclists—word on the street among those in the know is that New Haven is definitely on riders’ radar. “New Haven is becoming known as a bicycling city,” says Feiner with a smile. “They are talking about us in Seattle and Portland, which are two of the best biking cities in the world. That’s pretty cool.”
