PSA: Go to NYC Summer Streets on Saturday

Last Saturday I rode my bike from my apartment on the West Side, through Central Park and then all the way down Park Avenue to the Brooklyn Bridge. And back.

How was I able to do that? Because I am a biking goddess! And because the NYC DOT closes Park Avenue to car traffic from 7am to 1pm the first three Saturdays in August in a festival called Summer Streets.

It’s a great place to do a long run (you can go straight from the Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park car free). But it’s more than a running/biking route. There are dance classes, a giant waterslide, incredible photo ops and some freebies to be grabbed.
