5.31.13 … Marcellus Hall’s ‘Urban Cycles’: “I’ve only been ‘doored’ twice” …

Marcellus Hall’s ‘Urban Cycles’, The New Yorker, Citi Bikes:  “I’ve only been ‘doored’ twice” … wow, I’ve never been “doored.”

“I’ve only been ‘doored’ twice,” says Marcellus Hall, the artist who penned this week’s cover, “Urban Cycles.” Hall goes on to explain how he’s managed to survive for fifteen years as a cyclist in the city: “I’m very careful. I look into the side mirrors of the parked cars to see if there’s movement inside. I ride only on the left side of the street because there’s less of chance of a passenger getting out than of a driver. Actually, I read it in some cyclist publication that, as a cyclist, you’re allowed to take up a whole lane and sometimes, I even do that—though it’s a risky proposition. I’m not one of those hard-core bike freaks; it’s just a good way for me to get around in the city.”
