EVENT DATE: Sep 10, 2016
Since 2013, I have been doing an annual night bike ride in honor of my dear friend Alex Bloom, who succumbed to breast cancer in 2012. On September 10th, the anniversary of her death, friends Katherine and Gwyn help to plan a route to points throughout Brooklyn where we can remember Alex, tell stories about special times with her, and honor her friendship. Others have joined us in the past three years and I always look forward to adding new stops. This year, the date coincides with Bike the Boros, a citiwide 100-mile bike ride sponsored by Transportation Alternatives. So we will move our annual night ride to the daytime and follow the beginner's route - 31 miles through Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan - in memory of Alex Bloom who always begged me to wear a helmet while riding my bike! Please consider making a donation to support Transportation Alternatives and the important work they do to make New York City streets safe for cyclists.
