Amazing First Friday ~ Guided Moonlight Bike Ride Central Park

Sat 2 September à 01:30

Timezone : Paris (GMT+02:00)

Central Park
New York

This is a tradition that the "Times-Up" bike group has been running in Central Park for years ... the "Moonlight Bike Ride". Going strong since 1994! 

This is a fun, relaxing, auto-free ride through Central Park. Enjoy the tranquility of the park & its beautiful ponds & waterways: a nature lover's dream.

. Bike guides front & rear. (BRING YOUR HELMET!) 

The ride moves at a very leisurely pace with a few stops to enjoy the scenery. We usually finish before midnight, back at Columbus Circle. Total mileage is under 10 miles. We do not require lights (although if you have them you should bring them), and any kind of bike will work. Helmets are Absolutely Mandatory ...No Children

Meet by the Bellmore street level ticket machine at 7:40PM, we are taking the 8:02 PM train, that arrives at Penn Station at 8:56PM.

If taking a different train, meet us at the James A. Farley Post Office Building (corner of 34th st. and 8th ave.) at 9:10PM, 9:25 PM we will pedal off;   Or meet at Columbus Circle entrance at 9:45PM (see below for information on meeting points A, B & C) 

A bike pass for the LIRR is technically required, but we have found that they rarely ask for it. This $5.00 lifetime pass can be purchased at stations. If you don't have one on the train, you can pay the conductor in cash if asked. So DON'T sweat it.

We will use the safe NYC bike lanes up to the Park. We will arrive before 10:00PM, at Columbus Circle (SW corner of Central Park). The ride is approximately 1-1/2 hours.  Helmets are required!

"There's an easy, unqualifiable magic to taking the park by moonlight on two wheels. It's like pedaling into a fairy tale: Gliding past the lake, monuments, through dense patches of trees, we fight to hush our own giggles, reticent to break the park's library quiet or scare off any park residents (fauna or faerie)."
