Despite being led by clowns, Thursday evening’s Bike Liberation Ride was a rousing success. The group of a dozen or so riders nudged, cajoled, and teased drivers of trucks, taxis, limos, and private cars out of dedicated bike lanes downtown. The journey began in Washington Square Park with instructions to keep the affair fun, safe, and clean, and ended with movie night at Time’s Up!
In between, we handed out phony tickets to drivers blocking the bike lanes and cheered on a traffic enforcement agent as he handed out real citations on Second Avenue.
