New York is doing this “open streets” event, Summer Streets, for three Saturdays in a row (8/8, 8/15, 8/22) but whoever’s in charge of publicizing it, is doing a strange job of it. Is it for people who have never ridden a bike to work? Is it for bike activists? What happens at the stations on the map? Besides being hard to find, the website is vague on all this.

Here’s the gist: NO CARS ON PARK AVENUE, some free bikes to use (although most people will bring their own), some exercise classes, some vendors, and some entertainers. Do the whole circuit on the map and see what happens.
