Harlem to Summer Streets
The summer streets program are on once again, meaning that Park Ave. from 72nd St to the Brooklyn Bridge will be closed to traffic, & open to cyclists, joggers, roller bladders, etc. It is like a big block party, which promotes biking, and other physical activities. (skating, jogging etc.) There are also some freebies. 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 approximately 16 to 20 miles, w/ many rest stops to enjoy the activities and giveaways on Pk Ave. The ride will start @ Lenox Ave. & 110th St, Central Park North @ 10:00, (110 St. on the 2 or 3 line) going through Central Pk w/ 1 hill, & much smaller rolling hills, (we will go easy & enjoy the down hills) A bike with gears are strongly recommend. Please bring at least one properly sized spare inner tube to fit your tire, and tools for your bike it does not have a quick release. (two spare tubes are advised)
