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.
Check it out August 7 or 15. Did anyone else go August 1?
