Tired of cars and trucks clowning around and blocking the bike lanes?
Come join the Bike Clown Brigade, made up of cyclists dressed like clowns, as they ride through the Manhattan bike lanes searching out motor vehicles illegally parked in their lanes and reminding drivers how dangerous, sometimes deadly, cars & trucks in the bike lanes are for cyclists.
Any driver refusing to move will be issued a “parking ticket” for $115 for violating NYC traffic law Section 4-08 (e), which explicitly prohibits parking, standing or stopping in bike lanes and holds a $115 fine. The clowns will draw attention to what they believe the NYPD should be doing: enforcing the laws that protect bicyclists.
This ride usually covers a bit over 5 miles and lasts about 2 hours.
