Transportation Alternatives is sponsoring a gathering to support the Prospect Park West bike lane.
Start: August 1, 2010 – 12:00pm
End: August 1, 2010 – 2:00pm
Grand Army Plaza end of Prospect Park West bike lane
This Sunday, T.A. staff and volunteers will be gathering at noon at the Prospect Park West Bike Lane entrance by Grand Army Plaza to distribute Bike Rules handbooks and encourage cyclists using the new lane to take the lead in making the lane safe and pleasant for all street users. They will be encouraging cyclists to watch carefully for pedestrians and to be sure to yield to them as they try to cross the street. Additionally there will be staff from Street Films on hand to document how the lane has positively impacted the street, slowing car traffic and giving cyclists a dedicated space on the street, as well as encouraging cyclists to be mindful of pedestrians and other cyclists alike as they traverse this awesome new lane. Please join us and show some love for PPW!
