Traffic-Calming Rides

Cars out of the parks! It's a park. Not a parkway. Art by Ken Avidor.The Great Central Park Traffic Calming Ride Rolls Again! — Now in Prospect Park, Too!

This is a ride through New York City’s great parks to help make the park roads auto-free. Traffic Calming Rides in Manhattan’s Central Park have been going on for over 10 years, and the rides in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park have become popular.

We roll side by side around the parks’ loop roads. This is a nonconfrontational ride to slow down car traffic during the hours the park is open to cars.

The ride lasts about one hour or until the start of the park’s auto-free hours.
