I ride my bike into work several days a week.
The trip is just under four miles, with a lot of traffic lights, and a decent incline up one half of the Brooklyn Bridge.
Google Maps estimates it should take 23 minutes on a bicycle, and on an ordinary bike, that was usually what I found as well.
When the weather is nice, the ride can be a real pleasure.
The bits I like least are getting stuck at a red light or behind a tourist snapping selfies in the bike lane on the bridge.
It’s also a bit uncomfortable on warm days, when I might show up to the office dripping sweat.So I jumped at the chance to test out the Copenhagen Wheel from Superpedestrian.
