Cyclist of the Month: Petra Kirstein

A Streetfilm by Sean Clifford

Running Time: 3 minutes 50 seconds

When asked for advice for New Yorkers who don't ride, Petra Kirstein says "New York is beautiful, and New York has beautiful weather. Just try it, its wonderful!" The former Transportation Alternatives staffer and life-long bike commuter rides each day from Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn to Columbus Circle in Manhattan. Her commute includes a stop at her son Magnus' daycare and a jaunt over the Brooklyn Bridge. Send Streefilms an email and nominate someone you know for Cyclist of the Month.
