Hallowheel: Inter-boo-rough Bridges Ride & Rally

The Bronx TA activist committee started Hallowheel in 2016, and we need better infrastructure to connect all 5 boroughs now!

Each borough hosted a distanced costumed ride across some of our city bridges. During the rides, we shared scary stories about the lack of safe biking infrastructure and history around the bridges. The rides converged at Gracie Mansion for a distanced costume contest and rally, complete with candy prizes for the best costumes from every boo-rough and...the mayor and DoT.
