Blizzard Mountain Biking

Blizzard Mountain Biking in Hoboken

Hoboken resident Carlos decided to have some fun during our Blizzard last weekend. Instead of curling up on the sofa with his Netflix account, he decided to strap on a video camera and go blizzard mountain biking!

He took some shots on Friday night – as well as during the day on Saturday once cleanup had already begun. He used the super popular GoPro HD Hero sport camera to film his quest.

He rode along Washington Street, as well as on the waterfront – in spots near Maxwell Place, Hudson Tea Building (and that Global Warming Boat) – then down Sinatra Drive to Pier A Park. No obstacle was too big.

I can bet Carlos said Bike lanes? I don’t need no friggin’ bike lanes!”

Sadly, the police will probably never ticket a biker in this town unless the infraction occurs during the two times a shift they leave the automobile(picking up their sandwich from Luca Brasi and getting out at the end of their shift).

The bikers on 1st keep getting worse and then you have the crazy old hippie guy who rides down the center of the street yelling at cars.

I also hit a biker who ran a stop sign while going the wrong way down a one-way street 2 weeks ago. Then he yelled at me for being in the wrong.

Riding on the sidewalk, riding through stop signs, and going the wrong way down one-way streets, typical Hoboken biker. I have nothing against biking, I bike often myself, but bicycles should be oberying traffic rules (NJ law 39:4-14.1 Rights and Duties of Persons on Bicycles). As a pedestrian I have almost been run over by bikers not yielding to pedestrians in a crosswalk (not to mention on the sidewalk). As a motorist I have almost hit bikers that fly through stop signs when I have the right away. I think Hoboken needs to do more to educated bikers on the law and the police should enforce the law.

Hey Civic66, I to am a cyclist. The Hoboken City website does state that riding a bike is allowed on the sidewalks, although not faster than walking speed. Not sure if it contradicts state traffic laws. And if you can’t ride faster than you can walk, what’s the point?[quote comment=”219458″]Riding on the sidewalk, riding through stop signs, and going the wrong way down one-way streets, typical Hoboken biker.
