Bike to Work Day – Friday, May 18th
Next Friday, May 18th is Bike to Work Day here in New York and across the country and to celebrate I’m hosting a ride from Gorilla Coffee to the Manhattan Bridge. Full details are at the new BikeNYC.org:
Celebrate National Bike to Work day Brooklyn style! Join fellow two-wheeled commuters for a social ride from Park Slope to the Manhattan Bridge. We’ll enjoy some coffee and muffins and then meet up with other Bike to Work Day rides coming from other parts of Brooklyn. Our route will take us through downtown Brooklyn to the Manhattan Bridge where Transportation Alternatives volunteers will be on hand with snacks and, of course, more coffee. From there, riders will have the option to continue on to Manhattan destinations with other riders. Don’t worry! If you’re new to bike commuting we’ll make sure you’re hooked up with a great guide.
Meeting time is 8:00 AM. I’ll have “I Bike Brooklyn” buttons on hand to give out to anyone who comes. And if you don’t live near Park Slope there’s also a Bike to Work ride from Ditmas Park leaving at 7:30 AM.
