I'm a NYer for bicycling because bicycling is good for NY. Are you a New Yorker for bicycling?
Declare yourself a New Yorker for Bicycling:
I pledge my support for the three pillars of safe cycling in New York:
- Responsible riding is safer for everyone.
- Bike lanes keep everyone out of each other's way and out of harm's way.
- A robust public bike share program empowers New Yorkers with more transit choices.
I support these principles because more New Yorkers riding bicycles on NYC streets benefits New York as a whole. Bike-friendly enhancements to our streets improve New Yorkers' health, increase pedestrian safety and bolster a more vibrant business community. As a bicyclist, I vow to ride safely and create a positive street environment. As a pedestrian, transit rider or driver, I support the right to safe travel for New Yorkers who choose bicycling and recognize that we’re all better off when everyone has safe space to travel. In the interest of a greener, greater New York, I call on my elected and appointed officials to do the same.
