Floyd Bennett Field is an abandoned airfield and public park in New York, NY that has been the home to a weekly race series for 25 years. A private company has increased the permit fees dramatically, preventing racing from continuing. Please sign this petition to lower the fee so that racing can continue: Petition · Save Cycling at Floyd Bennett Field! · Change.org
Not a NY resident but I signed it anyhow. Little surprised (and curious) to see the NPS hand over responsibility over to a private company for public land. Perhaps I don’t know nearly enough about similar agreements but would like to. Even more surprised to hear the rates were hiked that much to use public lands.
