Bike Commuter Breakfast to Celebrate Astoria’s New 20th Avenue Bike Lane

Join Transportation Alternatives and Astoria cyclists for a bike commuter breakfast on Wednesday, November 8th as we celebrate the newest piece of Queens' bicycling network: the DOT's 20th Avenue bike lane! T.A. and Queens cyclists will be showing our support for the DOT's new bicycle initiatives alongside local elected officials, community board leaders and neighborhood groups. The 20th Avenue lane provides a critical east-west link for bike commuters in Queens and will serve as part of the Queens East River and North Shore Greenway.

This is a great chance to tell T.A. about your commute, talk with local elected officials about bicycling conditions in Astoria and meet other bike commuters in the neighborhood. Join us for a cup of coffee on your way to work as we say "Thank you DOT!"
