Re: Organized local group bike rides

Thank, everyone.

Heights - BTCNJ is the club I belonged to for a couple of years. I think I may have met you on one of their rides. Good rides, nice group of people and I'll probably still ride with them occasionally, but I'd like to have something locally reliable that doesn't require me to pack up and drive at least 45 minutes to get to a ride - sometimes an hour.

Boodipah - I had a bad experience with a bike that I bought at Gotham quite a while ago and don't intend to go back. Sids (19th between 6th and 7th) is far superior. But neither works for what I'm hoping to find - a local (i.e. in Jersey City) meet up for a ride.

I've checked out NYCC in the past and will probably join but its far from the ideal JC answer. It would be great in a city of ~ 275,000 to be able to find a dozen or so people who regularly ride and not have to go through an ordeal to get to the start of a ride (whether its loading up a car, catching PATH/Ferry to get there or riding 12 miles to the start of a ride.)


maybe check w/ Grove Strike Bicycles if they know of any? there is a bikejc group that does the ward tour but i dont think they do long organized rides

fyi, i assume when you say 'ride 12 miles to the start' you are referring to going up past the GW to catch a ride up 9W. if so, i do that ride basically every saturday morning, never w/ a group though (i was also looking for a group). i just do it by myself or with a friend and sometimes ill catch on with a group of 3-4 additional riders

well that's because it would disenfranchise millions of poor Americans that have no identification yet still manage to cash checks, fill prescriptions, buy alcohol or cigarettes, apply for wellfare, food stamps, oh wait, I just ruined that argument.


what a stupid argument. so by not requiring ID when you vote, you could walk in and vote for me ... do you agree this is a HUGE gap in our voting process ?

how about we take these millions of poor Americans and get them IDs ? i need an ID to buy alcohol and fill my prescription -- so why can't we get these folks IDs ? would it take an outreach program ? yes .. ultimately would we be in a better place if that happened ? yes

sometimes its worth doing the hard things rather than complaining about why we can't do them

for financial service firms, probably

Goldman -- moved most of their US back office operations to Salt Lake City

Fidelity -- in Dallas

Blackrock -- in Delaware

JPM -- in Dallas

WF -- in Charlotte


these are just operations. the R&D staff is global in low cost countries (1,000s of developers in countries like India and Eastern Europe)


banks are moving all operations to low cost states/cities where they have access to cheap, smart college grads. primarily because video conferencing and shared networks have become so cheap that it makes sense for them to do

tough situation for the state to be in, but its the easy way out for politicians. appease constituents now through nice contracts and let the next guy deal with the problem down the road

you can't take away the pensions that people have signed into. we should be doing 2 things:

(1) every NEW state employee gets a defined contribution plan, not defined benefit
(2) try to buyout as many of these existing pension obligations as possible. may cost you some $$ now but it kills the liability going fwd

Parking became a problem when Fulop proposed as councilman the change in policy for new construction. It was always one residence, one parking space. Now ration is less than 50%, so what is happening? New residents are parking on the streets. The developers are making more money because parking spaces do not pay like a rental but the overflow of cars on the street impacts people who live in older homes without parking.


Same conversation on every thread. New residents and old are more than welcome to actually pay for a spot and park in one of the many 1/2 empty decks downtown. We don't lack parking. We lack free parking. Free parking in a city is a ridiculous waste of space and money.

According to the US Census over 40% of the residences in JC don't actually own cars. Yet we're supposed to build a space for each and every new unit? That's insanity.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ ... #cite_ref-bikesatwork_1-9


Why should long time residents pay for parking when it was always free? It is also free in other cities. I pay enough in taxes and water, so why should parking be another liability? If developers want to make a profit on their buildings it should not be at the expense of long term residents. They should not have to fight to maintain what they have. Again, did you ask Fulop and the council to give up their free parking behind city hall?



why do you insist on treating resident A different than resident B ?

the one thing we definitely need to do is replace some of the surface parking lots with parking garages. how that happens ... who knows -- probably a combination of more retail/residential and the zoning dept insist on them building garages as well

Kind of sensitive there maybe you should give a hoot. At least with Stations of the Cross you know who you are dealing with, plus they can continue to walk in public without being in mystery. Try walking into a bank with your head covered. An un-trusted bunch. Did they ever think about assimilating ?


wow man, ever think about the bill of rights ?

correct .. they are a non-profit insurance company so anything left over at the end of the year not paid out in claims (and other expenses) is returned in the form of dividends. i think its roughly 5-7% of your premiums

I have NJM right now for my condo insurance. i didnt even think twice about going elsewhere, but i dont think you'll find a lower rate. as far as customer service, they've always been great when i had car insurance, and i haven't needed them for condo insurance yet..

sidenote, my folks have NJM property insurance and have needed them due to storms and such, and they've been nothing but helpful

The problem with the PATH is that on the weekends or late night you may be waiting up to 20-25 min for the train. And non-rush hour at night the connecting train at Newport isn't timed right so you wait there for like 15 min
