Reaction to yesterday's Ride & Stride event was overwhelmingly positive, with residents seeming to relish the opportunity to enjoy wide open streets without the threat of automobiles.
The few complaints centered on traffic; one person reported that it took him an hour to travel from Lakewood and Gallatin to the Downey Landing.
Here is a roundup of tweets from yesterday:
