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.

Dr. Sylvia Sylberger, Hofstra's Mathematics chair, is chair of Car-Less Long Island.

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.

Dressing up like Vice Provost Bob Brinkmann did last year is optional, but prizes are available for those who go up and beyond!
