Happy Independence, Food Mavens! The 4th of July has arrived, and in the Northeast, it’s brought perfect weather for a bike ride & barbecue. Fresh off the heals of my Ride for Roswell bike-a-thon, I’ve become a bit of a Peddling Maven, and as I discovered last year, there’s no better way to ring in the holiday than a city-wide feast on two wheels! If you’re in NYC today and looking for a special way to spend the day, I have an itinerary for you that’s as exciting as it is delicious. Complete with the best BBQ in town, historic sight-seeing in Harlem and fireworks along the Hudson, take my advice and Bike it Up this Independence Day!
