Biking in NYC – Downtown Manhattan



In this video I ride from the Jane Hotel in West Village to the Staten Island Ferry terminal in downtown Manhattan. Rather than taking the recommended bike route along the waterfront, I elected to ride through the downtown streets. I passed through West Village, SoHo and the Financial District before reaching my destination. The weather stayed nice and warm and sunny all day.

I used my Contour Roam 2 camera to shoot the action footage and recorded the audio with my Panasonic voice recorder and earpiece microphone. I tracked the speed and heart rate using my Garmin eTrex 30 GPS, and wrote a basic program in Turing to refresh the numbers on the screen for displaying it.

New York City is a great bicycling city! I encourage you to explore the city on a bike if you ever visit.
