It was a circus, of sorts, on Kent Avenue yesterday. Bicyclists from the advocacy group Times UN donned clown suits and pedaled along a new bike lane in Williamsburg that has been criticized, especially by some members of the Hasidic community who protested cyclists' "immodest" dress and complained about removal of parking spots. The "clowns" staged mock accidents with vehicles that parked in the bike lane to demonstrate the dangers the vehicles pose to them.
