I don’t know, when I was there, tons of cars (or, more literally, tens of tons of cars) with Friends and Family passes were getting waived-through the NO BIKE ZONE on JFK, although, admittedly, this was early on. (I’m sure most of the Friends and Family people ended up parking closer to the Banjo Stage, where their tents were located.)
And since We’re All About Safety and whatnot, what’s up with the gasoline-powered ClubCar drivers, how fast are they allowed to go on the dusty sidewalks of JFK? 20 MPH? 25 MPH? I don’t know.
All’s I know is that I couldn’t keep up with them when I was pedalling downhill on the slopey part of JFK. But I was able to enjoy the dust clouds they kicked up, the ones that spread all over JFK:

And, HSB people, if you’ve cured the BICYCLE HAZARD by not letting bikes go through on JFK, then there is no more BICYCLE HAZARD, right? So what are the signs supposed to be telling people?
Now, I’m not one to criticize people or nothing, but if I were, I might say something about putting them ClubCars into speed-limited “golf-cart mode” next year.
And, HSB people, you have so much money, right? You’re swimming in resources. So why not put out some more bike racks next year? Just have them stretching to the horizon, you dig? T’wouldn’t cost that much at all…
