Central Park Moonlight Ride, Friday, June 1st. Meet at 10 p.m., Columbus Circle (SW corner of Central Park). Going strong since 1994! 
A big victory was recently announced by the city: the Central Park loop roads will become auto-free on June 27th. This is a campaign that Time's Up has been working on for over 20 years. In the past we had successfully gotten entrances and exits closed to the park and reduced car hours but now finally we are getting a total ban of cars from Central Park's loop road.
At the beginning of the year Prospect Park became auto-free and now Central Park, with hopefully other cities to follow.

In another amazing turn of events, the pedi-cab industry, which Time's Up volunteers helped to get off the ground, will still be able to use the loop road in Central Park. So bicycle transportation will replace polluting cars in one of the most famous parks in the world. Hopefully this will spread to other parks and other cities and beyond. Thanks for everybody who supported this long-term campaign!

So join us and celebrate the future auto-free Central Park loop roads on the Central Park Moonlight Ride. This is a fun, relaxing auto-free ride through Central Park. Enjoy the tranquillity of the park & its beautiful ponds & waterways: a nature lover's dream. Totally safe. Bike guides front & rear.
