More fog this morning, but it looks like you'll stay dry:

Friday Weather

Friday Night Partly cloudy, with a low around 65. Southwest wind 5 to 9 mph becoming northwest after midnight.

Sunrise: 5:28am

Sunset: 8:20pm

And by this evening the weather should be ideal for the Bike Home from Work Party:

Don't worry, you can still go to the Bike Home from Work Party even if home for you isn't Brooklyn, and even if you don't work.  In fact that's all the more reason to attend, because it's free.  (Though you should donate anyway if you can.)

As for the weekend, there could be some thunderstorms

And the Brooklyn Brewery Weekend Beer Forecast calls for...

...Sorachi Ace!

Sorachi Ace

With beautiful weather mixed with a chance of more storms ahead, we’re recommending you pack your own sunshine with Brooklyn Sorachi Ace. This bright, citrus-forward saison can fend off the storm clouds and celebrate blue skies so you’re ready for anything. Just remember to take cover if we get more hail—this beer doesn’t need ice.

If you do head out to the beach this weekend, expect to see more ebikes:

You’ll be seeing those green bikes through September as Lime has announced that it will extend its Rockaway e-bike pilot program through the summer and into September.

In addition, Lime will be gradually increasing the number of e-bikes in the Rockaways from 400 to 600.

And if your commute takes you down 5th Ave., expect to see less road surface:

Wondering how the LPI head start pilot is working out?

Well, here are the results:

If you're not fluent in charts, that means "It works good."

Meanwhile, in Brooklyn, Community Board 11 is fully in favor of bike lanes, just as long as none of them are within Community Board 11:

And The City has more on Brooklyn CB1's sweet new RAV4:

“The borough president has meetings at night at Borough Hall — the chair has to go,” he said.

“How does she get there? I take her. I’ve been driving the chair for 42 years … whoever the board is, they’re volunteers. How do they get to where they wanna go? I’m not going to parties.

“This is a city vehicle. I have my own car. I don’t need this car. We use less than $200 worth of gas a year,” added Esposito, who earned $123,535 last year for the CB1 job.

Uh, the fact he doesn't need it is exactly the point.

Some might argue the same is true of community boards.

Finally, don't lock your bike in the hallway:

Bizarre experience with NYFD from r/NYCbike

Too bad they don't mention what kind of lock it was, because that's a pretty good endorsement.
