Harlem to Summer Streets - CANCELLED
The summer streets program is on once again, meaning that Park Ave. from 72nd St to the Brooklyn Bridge will be closed to traffic and open to cyclists, joggers, roller bladers, etc. It's like a big block party that promotes biking and other physical activities. This would be a great intro ride to group riding in a minimum of traffic. Newbies are strongly encouraged to join.
The ride will be betwee 15 and 22 miles, with many rest stops to enjoy the activities and giveaways on Park Ave. The ride will start at Lenox Ave. & 110th St at 9:30, going through Central Park, with one big hill and much smaller rolling hills. We will go easy and enjoy the downhills. A bike with gears is strongly recommended. We will proceed to lower Manhattan via Park Ave., and will reverse and head north on Park Ave. to our starting point. Please bring one or two properly sized inner tubes for your tire.
