9:30am meet-up, 10:00am departure
In the past three years, New York City has established itself as one of North America’s best cities for bicycling. Join the CNU New York Chapter for a leisurely bike tour and discussion of the best bike infrastructure in Manhattan and Brooklyn.
This slow-paced bike ride will begin at Abingdon Square in the West Village and include many stops along the way to discuss and critique the city’s numerous bikeway types. We’ll look at cycle tracks, paths, protected lanes, green curb-side lanes, priority signalization, bike boxes, shared use lane markings (“sharrows”), peg-a-tracking, and more! Stops/sites along the way will also include urban infill projects, Olmsted’s Fort Greene Park, a Flea Market, and the pedestrianization of Broadway.
The ride will last approximately 3 hours and will conclude at Pedro’s Bar Restaurant in the Vinegar Hill/DUMBO neighborhood by 1:00pm.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday, July 15th. Please indicate whether or not you will be renting a bicycle prior to the ride so that the group knows to wait for you before departure.
Attendance is capped at 30. First come, first serve.
Meet at Abingdon Square, in the West Village(Convergence of Hudson Street and 8th Avenue)
