WE Bike NYC’s Call for Short Videos: 
How WE Appreciate Bikes

WE invite you to make a short video (~1min.) expressing how your bike appreciation has grown during these challenging times. Please post your video directly onto the Female Bike Forum and/or Instagram — and don’t forget to include the TWO hashtags #bikelove2020  and #webikenyc .

Themes encouraged relevant to current events include:

  • How your appreciation for bicycling has grown during the pandemic, during protests, or other recent personal, economic or social changes in your life 
  • Riding your bike for recreation, whether you are new or seasoned
  • Using your bicycle as a means to help others
  • Using your bicycle as a tool for civil disobedience during the recent protests
  • Recording the recent rise in bicycle travel 
  • Recording how you have seen the city change from the perspective of your bike

Enjoy and ride safely!

Meet a WE Biker: Bev Pangilinan

Every volunteer brings something special to our organization. And WE count on them—whether they’re leading our rides or writing our newsletters or responding to mail or building our website. This month’s volunteer is Bev Pangilinan. Get to know her here!

What was your first WE Bike NYC ride?
A few of my first memorable and fun WE Bike NYC rides were The Little Red Lighthouse, Governor’s Island and The Women’s 100 to Kensico Dam!

What’s your favorite route?
When you get to escape the city and ride in a bit of nature, that’s always a treat! A few of my local faves are the South/North County Trails, River Road to Nyack Beach, the epic climb to the top of Bear Mountain, county roads in Westchester and Connecticut, and being a Leo, I can hardly resist a fun jaunt out to Jacob Riis and the Rockaways for some fun in the sun!
 
What do you ride?
2 road bikes—the older of which has become the dedicated Zwift bike, a steel beater for commuting/errands, and a folding bike, if I can just remember how to unfold it!
 
Why do you love WE Bike NYC?

WE Bike NYC is one of the funnest, warmest, most welcoming and inclusive groups of women I’ve ever met! These wonderful, dedicated volunteers generously pour their hearts into spreading the joy of biking, and their mission is to provide a safe, nurturing space for riders of all levels. They are all excellent cyclists themselves and extremely knowledgeable in all things bike in NYC—whether it’s the best local routes to the latest laws or the best gear/pizza/ice cream!

WE Bike also hosts fun events like monthly Happy Hours and holiday highlight—the famous White Elephant Holiday Party! WE Bike fun is all year round! WE Bike is super community-oriented and encourages the growth of their riders, including exploration into New York City’s rich and diverse cycling opportunities!

Shortly after I started riding with WE Bike, I also started riding with Women’s Cycling NYC (sponsored by Bicycle Habitat)—fast forward a few years and now I’m in my 3rd year as a ride leader and also a 3-year grad of NYCC’s (New York Cycling Club) Spring Training Program called the SIG! All of the above are a few of the reasons I love WE Bike NYC, but my FAVORITE reason are the lifelong friends I’ve made from this group, brought together by our shared joy of biking! It’s SUCH a beautiful thing!

WE Can’t Do It Without You!

WE Bike NYC is now an official 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. WE are still entirely volunteer-run, but it takes money for us to maintain our current standards of operation.
