That was the cost of the bike/pedestrian path from Jones Beach to Tobay Beach. The trail was praised as wheelchair-accessible, but Oyster Bay Town put up a turnstile to let people in but keep bikes out of Tobay. Officials say bikes might hit cars or people in the parking lot -- like the bikes, not the cars, are the problem. Worse, disabled bikers can't get in without a phone call for the combination to a lock on a nearby gate.
That's not equal access as defined by law. Open the turnstile, and tell everyone to be careful.
