After dropping much too much money on a cab last Saturday because I failed to heed my own writeup of the weekend's subway changes, I'm determined this weekend to finally conquer my fear of biking in the city, in an attempt to lessen my reliance on an ever-infuriating subway system. Perhaps you'd like to join me: 14 subway lines have changes this weekend, but the weather promises to be ideal for taking matters into your own hands (or feet, if you will).

If you will be relying on the train this weekend, here's what to look forward to:
