"How early in the morning can I ride on River Road? says ""Henry Hudson Drive is open to cars and bicycles daylight hours"" but also warns that going around a roadway barrier leaves me subject to prosecution.

I'd like to head out Friday morning at 6, get my thirty miles in, and be at the office before my boss realizes I'm late. If anyone cares to join me, send me an e-mail. A-19 pace."

... at least as early as 6AM

I was there at 6 this morning and it was open.

River Rd.

I have been there pretty early (5:30am) and its never been closed. The limiting factor is the GWB which opens at 6am.

For now, entrances open at 5:30

I rode River Road this morning at 5:30am. Both GWB and River Road entrances were open.

So the sidewalk on the bridge actually opens before 6:00 a.m.? Have you ever been there before 6:00 and it was closed?

i've only done it once this year, but...

I've only ridden once this year to date before six...this past Thursday...and everything was open. I'm going again tomorrow at 5:45am...will let you know what I find. My typical spring/summer mid-week riding schedule is RR at 5:45am on Tues/Thurs, and I haven't had a problem in the several years (including this one) that I've been doing it...but, I'll let you know...
