#Bridges4People Citywide Summer Ride

#Bridges4People toured the various applications of bike lanes on city bridges and connecting street networks at the first annual Citywide Summer Ride! Participants met activists from all five boroughs and gained a better understanding of bike infrastructure across the city. Council Members Brad Lander and Stephen Levin spoke at the rally before the ride.

The ride consisted of three legs totalling 28.4 miles, and the route created by Bronx Activist Lucia Deng can be found here.

The Citywide Summer Ride was a collaboration with Transportation Alternatives committees from all five boroughs, including activists working on The Harbor Ring and the #WashingtonBridge4People campaign.
