Rain date – TBA. Ride  to protest the recommendation of the recent Creighton-Manning Study to install additional parking along New Scotland between Manning and Whitehall instead of bicycle lanes.  While few cars park on this road section, it  is a core bike route for Albany cyclists.  We encourage anyone sharing our concerns to email or write the Mayor (mayor@albanyny.gov) or their Councilperson.  E-mail addresses for Councilpersons can be found at –  https://www.albanyny.gov/Government/AlbanyNewYorkCityDirectory.aspx#Header8. Is New Scotland Ave. “bicycle friendly?”   Are recent changes and proposed changes making it better or worse?  Join other concerned cyclists on a ride toward downtown on this core route for Albany Cyclists.
