I don’t understand all this hating on bikers. Okay, yes, some of them need to learn to follow the rules of the road. Personally, i think the new, better constructed and marked paths will help a great deal. But does anyone seriously believe bikers are more of a detriment to LIC quality of life than reckless car drivers and pollution spewing, ear splitting trucks? Simple question: which of these three vehicles would you rather be harrassed by? And by the way, the yearly fees they pay for Citibikes way more than covers any remotely possible negative effect they might have on the condition of the roads. Bikes causing potholes? Get real.

Not a fan of DB

I’m hoping that Daniel Bryant forgets to wear his helmet and rides a Citi Bike into a brick wall.

Silent majority

I think I saw Daniel pedaling down Queens blvd the other day. He had on skinny jeans a beard some silly hat black converse high tops and looked like he needed a bath!


now let all the bike riders who do NOT follow the laws of the road get licensed, registered and insured – if these bikers are going to take over the roadways let them pay for it all and you can all let them pay for potholes also – you want to share the roads – share ALL of the costs…and when they get to Sunnyside park them n fron of Van Bramers house!

A Long Island City man on Friday, Jan. 28, was sentenced to 19 years in prison for the 2020 fatal shooting of a public school social studies teacher who was out walking his dog when he was caught in the crossfire during a confrontation between gang rivals in broad daylight, just blocks from his home, according to Queens District Attorney’s office.
