Use fenders for the melting snow on Saturday, which looks warmer still, and then Sunday brings the wash cycle we need to get the rest of it out of here:
So stock up on the Brooklyn Brewery Weekend Beer Forecast selection, which is...
With an up-and-down forecast that only guarantees cold temperatures, hang on to Brooklyn Lager for something dependable. Our classic flagship is smooth and refreshing enough for a post-ride cooldown, and doesn’t run up the ABV if you end up staying inside instead. Plus, you can grab it in cans or bottles for easy transportation.
Now you're all set.
Remember the clocks change this weekend:
On Sunday, 3/10 we spring ahead for #DaylightSavingTime losing an hour of sleep & waking up to a darker morning commute. @pix11news reports on what the loss of sleep could mean for drivers following #DST: https://t.co/UD4Dp1XfYW— NYC DOT (@NYC_DOT) March 7, 2019
And be ready for closures on the Broadway Bridge:
Update: #BroadwayBridge work over the #HarlemRiver has been rescheduled & will require intermittent 15 min FULL daytime bridge closures to all vehicular, pedestrian, & #bikenyc traffic, 3/10, beginning at 10AM. Any queued traffic will be allowed to dissipate in between closures. pic.twitter.com/659tyBal8e— NYC DOT (@NYC_DOT) March 6, 2019
As well as possible partial closures on the Williamsburg Bridge:
#WilliamsburgBridge work will require single lane closures:— NYC DOT (@NYC_DOT) March 5, 2019
3/9: Mn-bound outer roadway, 7AM-12PM
3/11-3/15: Mn & Bk-bound outer & inner roadways, 10AM-3PM
Partial pedestrian/#bikenyc path closures will be necessary, but the path will still be accessible pic.twitter.com/LSQOFcnBIF
Also, in case you're wondering, the Hudson River Greenway is 99.9% clear all the way to Dyckman Street.
Of course daylight savings also means spring is near, which means bike ticketing season is coming--though arguably it never ended, thanks in part to the ebike crackdown:

And also because so many people keep riding through the winter:
So what's the best way to avoid tickets? Well, here's a novel suggestion:
#BikeNYC hack: ride the streets and avenues that don’t have bike lanes in order to avoid NYPD bike stings. Just rode Madison north from midtown to UES and it was delightfully free of cops.— E. B. Lefferts (@EBLefferts) March 6, 2019
Though as someone who's been ticketed far from any protected bike lanes and ticketing hotspots I'm inclined to disagree. No sense sacrificing the relative comfort of the bike lane in search of a false sense of security. Because believe me, they'll ticket you anywhere.
Fabricated offenses notwithstanding, if you stop for the red lights, put a bell on your bike, and use lights at night, you should be good.
None of which is to say our approach to enforcement isn't wildly distorted:
Car culture: the woman who slapped the driver is in jail. The woman who drove her car into a deli (nearly killing people and causing massive property damage) is free to go.https://t.co/i17FQZX4mC— Andres Salomon (@Andres4Seattle) March 7, 2019
Sounds about right.
