Life In The Bike Lane: Getting Around The City By Bike

Bicycling is the fastest-growing way to get around in New York City. The number of people commuting by bike grew by 35 percent between 2007 and 2008 and many of them travel on the city's 420 miles of bike lanes. Still, the city is a crowded, smoggy, busy place and only 1 percent of New Yorkers bike to work. 

WNYC talked to a small slice of the 1 percent to get a glimpse of what life is like in the bike lane.
