...Defender IPA!

Defender IPA

With temperatures creeping back up this weekend, we’re recommending Defender IPA to help beat the heat. Tropical hops and a clean, refreshing edge make it a perfect contender to take on the proverbial “second summer” of NYC.

Yes, the weather's still summery and yet everyone's back to work, which would explain why Citi Bike saw record-breaking ridership on Wednesday yet again:

As you head out for that weekend ride, remember the Putnam Trail is closed for paving:

In Brooklyn, work on 4th Ave. is ongoing:

And the Shore Parkway bike lanes are getting Jersey barriers:

While in Manhattan the NYPD is getting sandwiches:

Tomorrow you and your family can take advantage of the summery weather by joining a Kidical Mass ride:

Finally, a rider on a Citi Bike was attacked without provocation in the 8th Ave. bike lane:

A cyclist says she was assaulted in Midtown South this week by two men who tackled her off of her bike and punched her multiple times.

"They seemed pretty proud of what they did," Ina M., who asked that her last name be withheld for fear of retribution from the men, told Gothamist today. "I wasn't even doing anything, I was just biking home." You can see video of the two men walking away from her, with one of them putting up his middle finger, below.

Fortunately this occurred right near the local precinct:

Because she was on the same block as the local precinct, she knocked on an NYPD van window to get help from cops before the men walked away. The three officers who emerged, wearing light blue uniforms with badges, said they were "city school security officers" and declined to help. “They were kinda dismissive about it,” she added. The men, meanwhile, got away.

So much for that.
