Pics of my bike ride in NYC

Decided to whore out some pics I took this evening on my bike ride in NYC. We drove in from Central NJ and parked right by Battery Park. Took a ride along the path on the West Side Highway and a little in Central Park. Here are a few of the pics we snapped.

Pics were taken by a Canon 7D w/24-70mm f/2.8L. Some pics aren't really related to cycling, but more to practice shooting/cropping/editing. Enjoy!

Traffic was brutal entering the Holland Tunnel so I took some pics along the NJ Turnpike.







Still quite a bit further to go.



My buddy Dimitri who just purchased this Giant TCR1 from Ebay yesterday. Got a great deal for it...only $1K. He's upgrading from an aluminum bike to this all CF one.



Here's my Specialized Tarmac Pro SL2 Double.



A little blurry...whoops.





Thought this came out pretty neat.



I will be riding through this shortly.



Another pic of the beast.





Here I go...







I wasn't actually getting wet at all. It was pretty easy riding through the water jets.





Suddenly....BAM! I get smacked in the face by a water jet just as I exit the last row of jets.



It didn't matter however, since a few minutes later the rain came down pretty hard and continued for the entire ride. We were pretty soaked, but it was fun.
