What do a non-profit founder, a knitter, an art director, and a student have in common? Well, for starters, they're some of our favorite NYC cyclists, and they all have a story to tell about Bike New York and the TD Five Boro Bike Tour presented by REI.
As it turns out, bikes are great parenting tools. Abbie Donoghue, Bike New York intern extraordinaire, spoke to three moms who bike with their families in NYC—and all agree that biking is an efficient way to get around town, gives kids a unique vantage point of their city, and is a whole lot of fun.
Yawa Kurkiewicz lives on Roosevelt Island, which she considers to be "a gem" of New York City. As a committed student, fierce National Bike Challenge competitor, and volunteer, we consider Yawa to be "a gem" of Bike New York. Yawa's also an avid knitter, and, yes, she did knit that beautiful cowl she's wearing in the video.
