This was in today's local Fort Lee paper: "Kindly be advised that the Residential Parking Ordinance, 289-36 has been ammended as follows: The following streets will be resident parking only on Saturday, Sunday, and Holidays.  This means that only residents and their vistors who possess the proper permits will be allowed to park on these streets on weekends and holidays.  This ordinance excludes meters, metered parking is open to all vehicles.  Monday through Friday, residential parking is in effect 9 to 5 for all and must have the proper permits."  This ordinance affects numerous streets, including Hudson Terrace, Myrtle Ave. (side street by Strictly Bicycles), Central Road and Central Ave. (just south of the bridge, near where the current construction is going on and Santorini Restaurant).  The Fort Lee Parking Authority's phone number is (201) 592-3500, ext 1518.  M-F, 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM.

You are correct.  Allison

You are correct.  Allison Park Road is in Englewood Cliffs.  The Fort Lee-Englewood Cliffs border is about two blocks north of Strictly Bicycles.

Fort Lee Historical Park, and

Fort Lee Historical Park, and Ross Dock down on Henry Hudson Drive (River Rd) have parking lots, though you may have to pay for parking during the warmer months.

I have always thought it a bit lame driving the car over the bridge to start a ride..

I like to thank the original

I like to thank the original poster for keeping members of the cycling community informed who are and are not members of the club who rely on the information posted

Its funny how myopic some of the posters to the original post to be so callous to to individual circumstances concerning how many riders get to the GW to start rides.

While many of the members live in Manhattan, Brooklyn and the like, we however have a number from our group who reside in Ct and NJ including areas west of the bridge who desire do to safety or distance need to drive a car.  And while cycling is always preferable , the distance needed to get to rendezvous points and then do a 60 mile ride, much further than many riders wish to make.

And while this post does not concern me personally, I found it informative.  Whereas, I have found a few of the posts to be caddy and self-righteous.

Really ??

Myopic ?? Callous ... really.. callous ??  BTW if you are coming from CT or NJ you are not driving over the bridge.. so obviously the comment was not addressed to those people..  Self righteous.. ?? I made a couple of comments that yeah.. were a light hearted dig at those who drive over the bridge from MANHATTAN.. hardly self righteous.. if anything your comments on my post hum a little bit..  You don't need to point out to me that many people travel to start their rides. I live in Greenpoint and ride close to 14 miles each way to Strictly and back to get to a start line... Ok thats not self righteous its called bravado.. Guilty as charged.

CT

I suppose someone in northern CT might drive to NJ over the Tappan Zee or Bear Mountain Bridge but someone in southwest CT is going to come eventually to I-95 and the GWB. It is true that noone in NJ needs to go over GWB to park on Hudson Terrace....
