Dinner ride raises awareness of new laws


Manhattan bikers gathered together at City Hall to start a progressive dinner ride beginning at Radina’s for appetizers, on to Bluestem Bistro for the main course and ending at Varsity Donuts for rootbeer floats Friday. Mayor Jim Sherow talked about the two new state laws affecting Manhattan cyclists. The first requires a three-foot passing area between road riding bicyclists and other vehicles. The second allows cyclists to pass through a red light that doesn’t sense them after a reasonable amount of time has passed without receiving a ticket.
