WE Bike NYC helps NYC DOT Finish 1000th Bike Infrastructure Mile!!

By Meg Ausen

WE were so happy to be part of the NYC DOT press conference on September 22 celebrating the 1,000th mile of bike lanes in New York City! WE Bike NYC director Casey Ashenhurst (left) and volunteer Meg Ausen represented WE Bike NYC at the event, assisting New York City council members and bicycle advocates paint the 1000th mile in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. WE know that having a reliable and safe bike infrastructure in place is a huge indicator for increasing female ridership (check out Women Bike’s report on this if you’re curious), which WE are definitely for. WE look forward to see this network continue to grow, especially in the outer boroughs, as well as the next 500 miles of bike lanes! Learn more about the announcement here!!
