Bike New York offers free education programs in all five boroughs that teach kids and adults how to ride a bike with confidence, even in the unpredictable environment of New York City! Donate here!
Simple solutions to complex problems are extremely rare; fortunately, bicycling is one of those solutions.
Bicycling has dramatically effective benefits that can transform and improve lives and communities, and because of this, it can help ensure that New York City will remain one of the world’s great economic and cultural capitals. A city that rides is a vibrant, healthy, competitive city—which is why New York City needs Bike New York, perhaps now more than ever. Today, Bike New York operates the largest free bicycle education program of its kind in the world; last year more than 25,000 New Yorkers benefited from our programs and services. 2017 was a transformative year for the organization as we merged with Recycle-A-Bicycle, another New York City–based nonprofit, thus adding a new dimension of bike education while leveraging overlapping goals. As New York City continues to change and diversify, so will Bike New York. This strategic plan outlines our next chapter and outlines how we will better serve the city. It’s important to note that while we embark on this plan, we shall remain true to Bike New York’s core values of Fairness, Integrity, Diversity, Equity, Independence, Fiscal Responsibility, and Sustainability. This strategic plan reaffirms Bike New York’s commitment to fostering a healthier, more active and productive city through bicycling while focusing our work on areas where our strength and expertise align with the City’s changing needs.
