Consider this a Public Service Announcement: Tomorrow is the last Saturday of Summer Streets, when Manhattan shuts down a HUGE BLOCK OF STREETS for bikers, runners, walkers alike to do as they please in them. It’s kind of awesome. And I wasn’t even on a bike. (Word to the wise, if you want a free bike rental, get there when it starts at 7 a.m.). There are a few “pit stops” set up along the way, the one at Broadway and Spring had a really cool set up from REI. Here you can see Sarah rock climbing in the middle of Soho. Because that happens. So that was awesome.

At Astor Place there was a Crunch Fitness pit stop and people were doing a dance/aerobics class on the pavement with an instructor from Dancing with The Stars. Further up at 25th st was a Whole Foods pit stops and there were tons of free samples. We got popsicles, as you do.

Summer Streets goes from the Brooklyn Bridge all the way up to 72nd st. So who knows what we didn’t even see. Take advantage before it’s over! And wake up early because it only goes til 1 p.m.

When Jessica and I walked back downtown, this man on a Segway was next to us and we started talking about it and he asked me, “Would you like to try?” Um… yeah? So I rode a Segway! And I almost ran over a baby in a stroller. It was fun! I mean, they are so incredibly dorky looking but they are FUN to be on. It’s so bizarre how they work. I really don’t get it.

Happy Summer Streets!
