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!
