Youth Bike Summit, Safer Fourth Avenue, Queens Bike Parking

Posted By Streetsblog On February 11, 2013 @ 11:40 am In Livable Streets Events | No Comments

This week features opportunities to speak up for on-street bike parking and safer streets in Queens and Brooklyn, plus the nation’s premiere conference about biking and young people, right here in New York. Here are the details:
  • Monday: The 82nd Street Partnership BID has requested that DOT install a bike corral on 82nd Street between Roosevelt and Baxter Avenues. DOT will present a proposal to Queens Community Board 4 [1]. 6:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday: NYC DOT, Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz and the 4th Avenue Task Force are hosting a public workshop on the future of Fourth Avenue [2]. The workshop will examine street safety and design improvements between Pacific Street and 15th Street. 7:00 p.m.
  • Thursday: Brooklyn Community Board 8, which already voted in support of a bike corral on Franklin Street, will vote again [3] after an attempt by some residents to have it removed. The vote comes after the board’s transportation committee unanimously affirmed its support [4] last month. 7:00 p.m.
  • Friday, Saturday and Sunday: Recycle-A-Bicycle will be hosting the third annual Youth Bike Summit [5], an event dedicated to youth bike education and advocacy. Featuring students, educators and advocates, the event includes workshops, hands-on activities, a visioning session and inspiring keynote addresses.

Keep an eye on the calendar for updated listings. Got an event we should know about? Drop us a line [6].
