NYPD's proposed rules for group skates / bike rides

This means us!!

I have changed the terminology from biking to skating in the press-release from Transportation Alternatives to underscore the impact of the proposed new rules on our community. Theoretically, every point applies to skaters, even the requirement to carry a bell.

The NYPD already has the rules needed to keep order in the streets. They have traffic laws, prohibitions against disorderly conduct, and a host of other rules. In short, there is no need for the police to create new rules to suppress non-vehicular transportation.

Speaker Christine Quinn is supporting the new rules. Make sure she knows that you don't by using the links provided. Alan has given you her answer to the initial notice, when you get that first answer, send another note of concerned opposition. Write also to your council-member.

See you on the streets!

Eddy Matzger goes to court for skating the Blue Ridge Pkwy

Carol Patch of DC has been circulating this appeal to help Eddy Matzger challenge the ban to skating on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Contact her for more information on the court date and requirements for submitting an affidavit.

Czech it out

Over the weekend, I had an opportunity to speak with with Jiri Prochazka, a journalist from Brno, Czech Republic, who is one of the founders of "Inline" magazine, and the website www.beinline.cz. He reports that Central and Eastern Europe have seen a recent blossoming of interest and participation in inline skating, from a very small base to become a visible presence in the parks of most major cities. In addition to a large Friday night skate in Bratislava, there are several smaller weekly street skates around the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Poland and Hungary have emerging scenes also.

NYC Central Park traffic closure withdrawn

Transportation Alternatives has announced the withdrawal of Intro 276, which would have closed Central Park to all motorized traffic for the summer. Please read the press release, enjoy the increased car-free hours that we have won, and stay tuned for more activity that will make New York a better place to roll under your own steam!
