[He] has been riding a bike in New York City for more than 25 years, long before it was fashionable or we had bike lanes and cycletracks. Musto has never had a driver's license, and he tells us the bicycle is an advantage in his profession. Although he's had his share of bikes stolen (he recommends buying a used, cheap bike), he has nothing but positivity and praise for the velocipede.I love the part at the end, when Michael addresses safety concerns. Bottom line: "You're gonna be fine." I enthusiastically agree with that, but I would respectfully add: consider wearing a helmet!
