The current NYPD ticketing blitz of cyclists in Central Park has essentially taken away our right to recreationally cycle in the park.
Being made to stop for red lights in an empty park, no matter the hour or traffic density, is irrational, eliminating the park for recreational cycling.
New York Cycle Club advocates safe and responsible cycling. We urge Mayor Bloomberg and the NYPD to find a solution that allows safe recreational cyclists to use Central Park without harassment or fear of ticketing when the park is closed to car traffic.
