Tarrytown wants to ban cycling and skating on a BUNCH of sidewalks in, and leading to, downtown.
(While sidewalk cycling isn't ideal, it's sometimes the least worst option. And when people doing it go slow and give priority to people walking, it's totally safe.)
13 year olds would be forced to bike in traffic on Route 9. Adults accompanying children cycling would have to cycle separately in the street.
Plus they're ruining road riding too. The proposal adds weird language regarding inhibiting traffic in any way.
The whole proposal is a misguided mess and must be scrapped.
