Our annual Volunteer Party took place at ShapeShifter Lab in Park Slope, Brooklyn on Tuesday, November 15. We honored and celebrated our top volunteers, without whom we would not be able to do what we do! Our most dedicated volunteers were treated to a night of drinks, dinner, live music, and even a raffle!

Quinn Zannoni brings real world skills into his classroom, and takes his classroom out into the real world. He heads up the bike program at P.S. 373 Brooklyn Transition Center in Bed-Stuy Brooklyn, a project supported by Recycle-A-Bicycle, NYC DOT, and Bike New York. He teaches soup-to-nuts bike skills that he hopes his students will carry over into careers in the bike industry.
We did it! We're thrilled to announce that the TD Five Boro Bike Tour has been awarded Gold-level certification from the Council Responsible Sport, a non-profit that recognizes sporting events that promote and demonstrate environmentally and socially responsible measures to reduce the environmental footprint within the event’s host community. How'd we do it?
