Transportation Alternatives Spring Party: Kick Off the Spring Cycling / Walking / Skating Season

It’s time for Transportation Alternatives’ spring party!

  • $4 draft beers for everyone who brings a helmet
  • Check out the launch of T.A.’s new poster series: Icons of a Living City

Plus!

  • Members and active T.A. volunteers enjoy a drink on the house!
  • Learn about all the great events (and volunteer opportunities) coming up during May for Bike Month NYC

Wait … there’s more!

If you’re not a T.A. member, now’s a great time to join. Members get discounts at over 100 area bike shops (just in time for that spring tune-up or upgrade), discounts on Kryptonite locks and discounts on the group’s annual NYC Century Bike Tour. They’ll have a member sign-up station with special gifts at the party.
