Car-free Crystal Lake -- tomorrow from 1 to 4

Thanks to the good efforts of Alderman John Rice -- and sponsored by the Bike/Ped Task Force, Bike Newton, and the Newtonville Neighborhood Council -- Lake Avenue will be closed to cars and trucks from 1 to 4 tomorrow. (The sign is waiting to fulfill its destiny closing off the street.)

This is the first of a series of street closings John's organizing. Such car-free events are known globally as cyclovia and locally as NewtonStreets (we're flattered!).

So, tomorrow, go out and enjoy Crystal Lake in a whole new way!

I thought this was great and am glad it's something the City will continue to sponsor.

It was a nice event, ironically because it gave a chance for the kids who are not as confident cyclists to build up their skills in relative safety.
