TRAFFIC CALMING RIDE -- PROSPECT PARK TOO! Prospect Park: Meet at the
Grand Army Plaza entrance at 6:00 p.m. Friday, July 16, 2004
This is a ride in Brooklyn's Prospect Park to help make park roads
auto-free.

We roll two by two in a single traffic lane around the southern Loop
Road. This is intended as a non-confrontational ride to slow down car
traffic during the hours the park is open to cars.
The ride lasts about one hour or until the start of the park's auto-free
hours.
***************
***************
CYCLONE RIDE
Friday, July 16
7 p.m. at the Manhattan side of the Brooklyn Bridge (southwest corner of
Chambers and Centre Street/Park Row)

OR

7:25 in Brooklyn at the Carroll St. Drawbridge (Carroll St. between
Nevins and Bond) OR

7:50 at the 69th Street Pier in Brooklyn at the Shore Parkway bicycle
path entrance (take 68th Street past Owl's Head Park and bear right).

The Cyclone Ride goes to Coney Island Amusement Park (Brooklyn) from
Manhattan. In July and August, we should get there just in time for
fireworks! This is a casual ride at a relaxed pace.

Bring locks as we plan to lock up and ride the rides. Bring money for
food and amusements, and a swimsuit if you plan to hit the waves. We
usually spend about an hour and a half in the park, on the beach (and in
the water!), on the boardwalk, and at Nathan's, and everyone has a GREAT
time! Some people return on the subway, and others ride.

Starts at 1 p.m.

United We Stand Garden, 138th St and Cypress Ave, Bronx. (Closest

Many of the gardens we have worked with in past seasons have been saved,
thanks to everyone lending a hand! In 2003

TIME'S UP! worked with Greenthumb to help community gardens on the
borderline for future development. In 2004 we are focusing on gardens in
the Bronx. This is a great opportunity for us to actively help make
these gardens permanent and have fun gardening. Please come
out--everyone is welcome.
