I've been commuting by foot and by bike in Staten Island since I moved here in 2007. It's a beautiful place, and it's a shame that many are afraid to enjoy the island on two wheels. I started to take action after a young man named R. J. Tillman, a student from Wagner College, where I work, was killed by a hit-and-run driver while he was biking home from campus -- on the road where I walk and ride every day. I connected with Transportation Alternatives after that horrible tragedy, and it has ignited my involvement in making change in this area. It is a worthy cause that I am glad to support, and I hope you will consider it, too.
