Edit: I'm bring this thread back, because of the problems the closure of 51st caused for bicyclists last year (see below, but to sum up, we all had to ride through parking lots with snarls of cars and sandy, crowded pedestrian paths. In the past, 51st was open and provided smooth sailing to the festival entrance.
This part of the new FAQ had me especially curious:Does that mean no bikes down that way either or can we still ride down that way? All the people staying in Indian Palms will be pretty screwed if we have to make an even longer detour.Please be advised, there will be NO festival access for pedestrians along Monroe Street between Avenue 49 and Avenue 52.
Thank you GV/PF if you are reading this and taking it under consideration with the relevant traffic authorities. I now return you to the original thread...
Having to go on bike around through the day lots and up the narrow, sandy trail packed with walkers sucks. You've made bikechella way worse. Reopen 51st on the east side to bikers and make it safer for bikers and walkers alike!
