Ridgewood Rides launches petition to protect pedestrian, cyclist access to Ridgewood Reservoir


Ridgewood Rides, a grassroots organization that protects people’s right to bike, is petitioning to save pedestrians’ and cyclists’ access to the Ridgewood Reservoir.

The petition advocates for installing bike lanes along Cypress Avenue and widening sidewalks along Cypress Avenue and Vermont Place, both of which lead to the entrance to the reservoir.

“I have first-hand experience of how dangerous it is as a pedestrian and a cyclist to try and access the Ridgewood Reservoir along Cypress Avenue and Vermont Place,” said Mallory Woods of Ridgewood Rides.
