Do you have an individual or an agency – public or private – whom you think has gone way beyond the call of duty on behalf of more and better and safer biking – either in your community, region or the great Empire State? Tell us about him or her or the agency or organization. Cast your net wide and help us make sure that we able to identify and recognize those individuals and leaders whom have helped us move along the path toward a goal of Safe Biking For All New Yorkers!
2013 will mark the third year in which NYBC will give out this prestigious award. In 2011 we recognized the Capital District Transportation Authority (CDTA), a regional transit agency that has done much for bikes and biking – both attached to their buses and in the community. In 2012, we gave this award to the City of Rochester, which is fast becoming New York State’s “Second City” of Biking. (It would be hard to top, or even emulate, the Bloomberg Administration led transformation of NYC’s infrastructure into a bike friendly cityscape.)
Let us hear from you by April 1, 2013. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your nominations, or if you have any questions about our annual Bike Champion Award.
