Via Felix Salmon, we learn about this event happening next Saturday, Sept. 22, starting at 11 a.m.
Join Transportation Alternatives' Bike Ambassadors on a bike tour of some of our favorite Bike Friendly Businesses to commemorate the launch of New York City's first Bike Friendly Business District, in Manhattan's East Village and Lower East Side. We'll ride through the East Village and Lower East Side stopping by our favorite Bike Friendly Businesses and arts destinations along the way, including Pushcart Coffee, Veselka and the Nuyorican Poets Cafe. The East Village and Lower East Side Bike Friendly Business District — the first of its kind — is a network of more than 150 businesses and cultural institutions dedicated to promoting safe bike riding and better bike infrastructure in their neighborhood. Free food provided, but bring your bike.
Find more details at BikeNYC.org. The group will meet at Veselka, Second Avenue at East Ninth Street.
And you're pleased with this...? Not pleased? Being part of the first Bike Friendly Business District and all.
