Bike to Work Day May 25th; Help Pass a NYS Idaho Stop Bill

Bike to Work with StreetsPAC and the City Council's Progressive Caucus

Please join us on May 25th for our annual Bike to Work event with the City Council's Progressive Caucus, along with our great partners Transportation Alternatives, Bike New York, Get Women Cycling, and Citi Bike – plus a great new addition this year, the City Council's Black, Latino and Asian Caucus!

We'll be converging on City Hall Park at 10 a.m. for a rally, with feeder rides rolling out from Brooklyn Borough Hall and Union Square Park at 9:30 a.m. (additional feeder rides TBD).

Citi Bike has generously offered to supply a limited number of bikes for those folks won't be riding their own, so please let us know when you RSVP here if you would like to reserve a Citi Bike.

Come on out and celebrate the continued growth of cycling in New York City, and lend your voice to the important call for further expansion of the city's safe, connected bike infrastructure.


Help Pass Idaho Stop and Three-Foot Safe Passing Laws

Send an email that will save a cyclist’s life… it could be yours.

We're asking folks to email New York State legislators to urge the passage of legislation before the end of session that will save cyclists’ lives and elevate their status as road users: "Idaho Stop" and Three-Foot Safe Passing.

Complete George (the organization leading the advocacy for expanding bike access on the George Washington Bridge) has assembled all the information you'll need, including the pertinent bill info, sample email language, and contact information for State Senate and Assembly leadership, all of which you can find here.

If made law, these bills would increase safety for people riding bikes across New York State, New York City included. We strongly urge you to take a few minutes to join in this important advocacy effort. Thank you!
