BENEFITING: Transportation Alternatives, Inc.
ORGANIZER: Transportation Alternatives, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Sep 10, 2016
On September 10th I will once again ride Transportation Alternative's 100-mile Century urban NYC bike tour. As an avid bike rider I choose to be a TransAlt member because I stay close to cycling issues around the City and I support their saftey initiatives such as Families for Safe Streets and Vision Zero.
This year I am riding because the streets are unsafe for cyclists, now more than ever. So far in 2016, a greater number of us have been killed riding our bikes than in all of last year. That's terrifying, and worse, it's preventable.
My ride is a fundraiser for TransAlt so I am asking for your financial sponsorship/support, simply because of this: Protected bike lanes cut crash rates in half, and TransAlt is fighting for new protected bike lanes across the city. Will you help them build the next truly great street for biking in New York?
