Sunday: Moms, Dads and Kids Ride the Prospect Park West Bike Lane

If you read the Streetsblog headlines every morning, you already know there's a family ride happening this Sunday on the Prospect Park West bike lane. Here are the details straight from the organizers if you'd like to participate:

Kids and parents: Show your support for the new Prospect Park West bike path by riding it as a family this Sunday, April 10!

Families and friends of the new Prospect Park West will be gathering at Grand Army Plaza at 10:30 a.m and getting some cool free t-shirts. Starting at 11 a.m. we'll be riding (and walking) the entire length of the bike path to the Bartel-Pritchard entrance of Prospect Park at 15th Street.

At the end of the ride there will be cupcakes from Blue Sky Bakery and more from our bike shop sponsors Bicycle Habitat and Ride Brooklyn.

Volunteers from Transportation Alternatives will be stationed along the route to keep the ride safe and hopefully free of skinned knees.

It should be a lovely day, a great ride or walk for everyone and an important opportunity to celebrate safe, family-friendly streets for Brooklyn.

RSVP at the "We Ride the Lanes" Facebook page (which has been acting a little balky, so try again in ten minutes if you run into problems).
