A perfect day in NYC.

It’s cool and dry in NYC today. Great sleeping weather. I slept in until 7:30.

Hill was up and out at 6:00 to be a streets ambassador for Transportation Alternatives on this first of the park avenue street closings. You can read about it here. I’m sorry to be missing this one, but for next week, I should have the assless bike finished! It’s my plan to go check it out and take pictures! If you’re in NYC this weekend, go see what a car free Manhattan would feel like. And NEXT week, join me for a ride!

Yesterday I managed to get about 7 hours in the shop.. uninterrupted by appointments. What a good day. Today and tomorrow should be just the same.

I have been pretty overwhelmed at the number of people sending me their thoughts and support. Thank you all so very much. It’s pretty dark to think about what this would be like alone. I’m very grateful. Over and over, people in the know (survivors, nurses, docs), tell me that attitude is the single most important thing. You’re all doing more than you know to keep me feeling positive. Thanks.

  1. I’ve not commented before, but I’ve been following your news and work for a while now, I’m just commenting to wish you luck in teaching cancer to cry.

    I’m looking forward to seeing this ‘assless’ bike too.

    Good luck.

  2. yeah man, get that assless whip done (it’ll come WITHOUT your choice of any brooks saddle ya choose, right?)! and pics posted post haste!

  3. Just chanced upon you flickr stream somehow, the gods of serendipity I suppose, and I cruised over to read your blog.

    What can I add to what people have said elsewhere? I wish you every imaginable support, my big brother is an esophageal cancer survivor, very tough surgery but he has come through it flying and is enjoying life to the full. You will too.

    Looking forward also to the assless bike. Reminds me of a special saddle they use in Holland for ? I dunno – kind of oval and rotated through 90 degrees. Looks comfortable to sit on.

    Hey anyway, good luck man.

    Teach that bastard to cry.

  4. hi ezra, i havent seen you in quite awhile but i heard about your blog and just want to wish you the best. attitude is definitely a big part and i know you’ve got a great one. i’ll be thinking about you! i was out riding on park avenue on saturday and i hope to see you out on the assless bike next week! (make sure not to miss the huge hello kitty fountain on 53rd st!) xoxo, erika wei
