Yolanda Cuomo started this petition to City of Long Beach NY

Opening the boardwalk to bicyclists for evening hours (ie, 6-10p, or even shorter) will improve morale and the mental & physical health of all residents of all ages.  I know that an after dinner ride is just the thing that my 11yo and I need to wind down the day and get a peaceful night's rest.  And I know that many, many residents will benefit from an evening boardwalk bike ride to decompress & reflect, and to get some fresh air & exercise during a quiet time of the day.  There is no evidence that evening bike hours will be a public health threat in any way.  In fact, quite the opposite is true. The City needs to revise its policy and make the changes known publicly on their web site, effective this week.  If they do not, there will continue to be sadness, frustration and unrest.  Unfortunately with the current unreasonable restrictions in place, people are inevitably lashing out at each other and at the Special Police instead of getting the peaceful bike ride they need.
