Cyclists gathered outside of The Museum of the City of New York Tuesday, along with Department of Transportation Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan and Museum of the City of New York Director Susan Henshaw Jones to promote a greener New York. The event was in support of the exhibit at the museum "Growing and Greening New York: PlaNYC" which features the day in the life of a New Yorker in 2030.

Nathan John, who works for Transportation Alternatives, had this to say why cycling in the city is one of the nicest and fastest ways to get around town.

"I like cycling in the city because it's kind of this perfect storm of good factors, quicker than the subway. I get fresh air, exercise, get to take in the sites, get to go over the bridges.- tend to make friends--and encounter people--it makes you apart of this big community of people who have found this new way to get around, so there's nothing really bad about it."
