Bike Week '96
This year's newly expanded Bike Week broadened the week-long celebration to include the joys of riding EVERYWHERE. And it was a huge success!
This year's festivities included a first: breakfasts with all five Borough Presidents. But there was more: a breakfast book signing with Dave Perry, author of Bike Cult, hosted by Barnes & Noble; a bike repair clinic held in the new Soho Patagonia store; valet parking at the newly re-opened Pavilion Movie Theater, Shea Stadium, and the Bronx Zoo.
Thank you to everyone who made Bike Week a success:
Bronx Borough President
And the countless volunteers who, as always, are the unsung heroes of every T.A. event. Thank you.
Special thanks to all our elected friends who stepped out for cycling. Borough Presidents Fernando Ferrer, Howard Golden, and Ruth Messinger (above) made appearances at their breakfasts, while Guy Molinari and Claire Schulman laid out spreads in their boroughs.
