Chuck Schumer Bike Lane Appreciation Day

February 15, 2011

Chuck celebrating with Marcia Kramer

I am declaring today, Tuesday, February 15th, “Chuck Schumer Bike Lane Appreciation Day.”  Here are some tips for celebrating:

In any communication, be polite and focus on the positive elements of the PPW traffic calming project.  For a quick how-to in effective letter writing, I suggest watching this TED video from Omar Ahmad.

Like the Jewish holidays, this one will be celebrated for two days.  You can continue your observance into Wednesday, February 16th.

If this takes off, I hope we can hold the first big CSBL Day celebration event on the Prospect Park West Bike Lane itself.  Chuck is sure to attend, since we know how much he and Iris love biking!

UPDATE: In observance of Chuck Schumer Bike Lane Appreciation Day The Brooklyn Paper has an excellent rundown of the connections between Senator Schumer and Neighbors for Better Bike Lanes’ pro-bono attorney Jim Walden.

    The good news is if you Google “chuck schumer prospect park” here’s what you get:

    Iris Weinshall’s husband is becoming indelibly linked to this issue. There’s no wall of separation between him and Neighbors for Better Bike Lanes. So cool that he wants to be associated with Norman Steisel.

    Keep it up. Everyone should post something on Chuck’s FB wall and contact him. Can we make a plaque to hang up on a lamp post by the bike lane? Call it “The Chuck Schumer Honorary Bike Lane”!!!
