• Join the Bike to Work Challenge!

    The Bike to Work Challenge is a three-week long competition to find New York City’s happiest workplace, otherwise known as the office with the highest percentage of people who get to work by bike.

    All workplaces in the Five Boroughs are welcome to join the Challenge, whether you are one or thousands. So put your mettle to the pedal and invite your co-workers to join your team and bike to work at least once, May 1 - 22. We’ll award the workplaces that have the highest percentage of participation during the Challenge. Earn awesome prizes, a new outlook on your morning commute and bragging rights at the water cooler - Transportation Alternatives will be supporting you every turn of the crank.

    Redbeard Bikes is sponsoring a very special prize for the Challenge: a professional bike fitting! Prizes will be awarded at the Bike Home From Work Party in Pearl Street Plaza/under the Archway right here in DUMBO on May 29th.

    The Challenge starts this Friday, 5/1, so sign up now!

  • Bike New York Needs Volunteers

    Our friends at Bike New York are looking for volunteers to join its team along the route of the TD Five Boro Bike Tour on Sunday, May 3rd. Check out a 

    On the first Sunday in May, 32,000 cyclists of all skill levels come from around the world to roll through every borough of New York City on streets totally free of cars. TD Five Boro Bike Tour is the world’s biggest charitable bike ride, with proceeds funding our free bike education programs.

    Event Day Volunteers are an essential part of the Tour. They help with a variety of tasks. Some of which may include setting up, serving snacks and beverages at Rest Areas and Water Stations, assisting riders at Information Areas, providing information to spectators and community members, clean up and break down and working at the Festival on Staten Island. Event Day Volunteers work in teams under the direction of their Captain, and are assigned to specific tasks as needed. Shifts last approximately 5-7 hours between 6:00am and 4:00pm, depending on the location. All Volunteers are expected to arrive on time and stay for the duration of their shift.

    No riding or bike skills are required, and volunteer groups are welcome. Breakfast and/or lunch will be provided depending on the shift. Volunteers must be 16 or older by May 3, 2015 (or accompanied by a guardian).

    In appreciation for their hard work, Event Day Volunteers will be rewarded with priority registration for the 2016 TD Five Boro Bike Tour or discounted registration for one of Bike New York's Regional Rides.
