The National Park Service has denied permission for BikeDC to use the GW Parkway, which was part of the ride last year. They already don’t use roads like Rock Creek Parkway because of NPS’s reluctance to use its land for recreation.
New York will struggle with a familiar problem to DC when its 9/11 memorial opens and oodles of tour buses pack the area. One plan would encourage dropping riders off outside Manhattan where they can switch to transit. (NYT)
