Join us 10:30am at 74th street and Central Park West to decorate bike and help volunteer with our setup!
Ways to help day of march:
– we need about 9 people either walking or walking bikes to help us carry our beautiful banners! Please come early to get set up. Thank you.
OUR MISSION :
We are an open group dedicated to creating a massive bicycle presence on the march and for other days of action. We hope to draw attention to bicycles as sources of clean, healthy sustainable transportation, as energy generation and cargo as they were used here in NY post hurricane Sandy for cell phone charging and bringing food, medical supplies and more out to devastated areas when cars were not viable and as fun tools for opening up and celebrating public space.
Many other countries such as Holland and Germany are reliant on bicycles for transportation to make their cities more livable and breathable. We want to encourage the use of bikes as part of our fight for climate justice here in congested, crammed New York City!
We are looking into building a visible, beautiful bike presence with decorations, puppet bikes, mutant bikes, tall bikes, cargo bikes and possibly implementing our sound bikes for roving dance parties and generating energy when possible. Bikes can also be used for relaying messages on marches, carrying supplies, etc. Bikes can also help people get around town who are here visiting just for the march.
We are open to possibilities! And we are open to receiving donations of bikes, trailers and more!
