NYC Summer Streets 2018

It’s that time of year – for NEW YORK CITY SUMMER STREETS!  What is Summer Streets you ask?  Well I’ll tell you!  The first 3 Saturdays in August they close 7 miles of city streets from 72nd St near Central Park at Park Ave all the way down to Lafayette St and Centre St at the Brooklyn Bridge.  A few of the cross streets are still open and they have police and volunteers directing people when it’s safe to continue running, cycling or rollerblading the miles of car free bliss!

I went last year by myself and had so much fun my sister decided to join me this year.

2 Boro Bike Tour

I was so excited that my friend Tracy and I snagged a spot in the 5 Boro Bike Tour this year because the spots sell out so fast!  This bike ride’s route takes you all through NYC and weaves it’s way 40 miles through Manhattan, the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, and Staten Island where you then take the ferry back to Manhattan.  Over 30,000 join this ride making it one of the largest cycling events in the USA.
