Our newest communications intern comes to us from the Netherlands, one of the most cycling friendly places on the planet. We asked her for her first impressions of New York cycling culture before she forgets what it’s like to ride in a city that puts bikes first.
From ride locations to event updates, stay tuned and up to date on the New York bike scene with the official blog of Bike New York.
Now that she has one Tour, one Expo, and one Regional Ride under her belt, we thought it was high time to check in on Bike New York's new(ish) Director of Events, Jena McLaughlin, and get her to talk about what makes the upcoming Twin Lights Ride (9/25) such a special event. Here's what she had to say.
Astoria resident Rumana Chowdhury took up cycling as a way to stay active without putting unnecessary strain on her joints. After completing all five core Bike New York education classes, she was the first person to receive a new bike through our Earn A Bike program, which is made possible by the generosity of our partners Bloomberg L.P. and the New York Mets. Big congrats, Rumana! We'll see you in the bike lane!
