Bridges 4 People hosted a bike ride and pedestrian parade to celebrate the opening of its new bi-directional bike path. Cyclists kicked off the celebration by biking both ways across the Brooklyn Bridge.

After the ride, cyclists met up with our pedestrian participants for a rally with speeches from TA Exceutive Director Danny Harris and Bridges 4 People activists. Everyone marched together on foot (some walking bicycles!) in a unified parade on the bridge's promenade to fun music from Off the Bar Brass!
Finally, we toasted at a restaurant in South Street Seaport to celebrate pedestrians and cyclists now having their own dedicated spaces.
