Pier 54 to be Site for Beginner Bicyclists
Pier 54 on the West Side will be turned into a safe place for bicyclists, especially beginners.
Even with a widening network of bike lanes, the city’s streets can still be intimidating for children and other New Yorkers trying to bicycle for a wobbly first time.
The cars are close and the trucks seem even closer, and other cyclists’ hurrying to work can make tottering around the lane on training wheels feel like an imposition.
But starting next month, beginning riders in search of a parking-lot-size space free of obstructions and traffic will have their own refuge on the West Side of Manhattan.
