Room to Breathe NYC: Bicyclists Needed for Photo Shoot

Transportation Alternatives is reproducing a dramatic visual that will show how much street space New York City would gain if more people rode bicycles and took mass transit instead of driving personal cars. T.A. will have a professional photographer on hand to document a group of 40-50 cyclists riding on an iconic stretch of NYC’s streets. We need you to be a part of the pack!

T.A. will provide bagels and coffee; you provide yourself, your bicycle and a desire to be part of an historic and unique event. Munich’s Society for Ecological Research and Portland’s Bicycle Transportation Alliance have each staged versions of what T.A. is planning here in NYC.
