Bike-to-Work Parade and Festival, Saturday, April 29
Supporting a more bike-able, walk-able and more public-transportation-friendly Long Island is the mission of the second Bike-to-Work parade and festival on Saturday, April 29, 2017, at 9 a.m., sponsored by the National Center for Suburban Studies and Car-less Long Island. The parade, which starts and ends at Hofstra University, is a “sister march” to the Climate March in Washington DC on the same day.
Participation is free. Though dressing up for the parade of bikes is optional, prizes will be awarded to the most creatively-dressed riders and impressively-decorated bikes.
The main parade follows a 6.5 mile loop starting on the North Campus, near the gazebo by HofUSA. There is also a shorter route available for pedestrians, those cycling with children and those who prefer to ride a shorter distance. The road portion of the biking route will have a police escort.
Advance registration is encouraged but not mandatory. Free tee-shirts are available to the first 50 pre-registered participants.
For more information and to register visit Car-less Long Island. For questions about the parade or to volunteer to help, email Dr. Sylvia Silberger, chair of Hofstra University’s Department of Mathematics and chair of Car-less Long Island.
