Central Park Cyclists Get Wish to Share Shortcut. But Slowly. [via NYT]

Nicole Bengiveno/The New York Times
Cyclists in Central Park can use roads open to vehicles, but not paths for pedestrians. Some walkers say they fear being hit.

Bicyclists trying to get legally from one side of Central Park to the other have long faced a challenge: because the park’s pedestrian paths are closed to cyclists, they have to either ride the looping vehicular drive south to 60th Street and then head north again, potentially going miles out of their way, or brave the narrow, crowded transverse roads.
