This Week: Win a Basket from Adeline Adeline; Today: Party with Streetsblog

Before I get to this week’s excellent pledge drive giveaway, a note about tonight: We hope to see you at Red Lantern Bicycles in Fort Greene (Brooklyn’s only bike shop café) for an evening of conversation and livable streets videos. I’ll be there along with Clarence, Elizabeth, and Robin from Streetfilms. Please RSVP if you’ll be joining us — it’s on, starting at 8:00, rain or shine.

We have three weeks left in our spring pledge drive. Thanks to all our readers who’ve contributed so far — your support has become indispensable to the reporting, commentary, and videos we produce at Streetsblog and Streetfilms. If you visit our sites regularly and haven’t given yet, please consider making a donation. This week we’re giving away a House of Talents bike basket courtesy of the very nice bicycle purveyors at Adeline Adeline. Have a look:

Congrats to the Streetsblog supporters who won last week’s Planet Bike giveaway: Mark Guralnick and Mike Dowd of Brooklyn, and Michelle Swanson of Spokane, Washington. Also, don’t forget that everyone who gives to Streetsblog NYC before the pledge drive ends on June 1 will be entered to win a new Schwinn city bike courtesy of Ride Brooklyn.

It’s going to be a thrilling summer with major developments for bike-share, Tappan Zee transit, and critical safety improvements like the Fourth Avenue redesign on the horizon. Give to Streetsblog and help us do justice to all these important stories and more.

  • I know how much everybody loves unsolicited feature ideas but… ending the donation process with a an option to share to Facebook and Twitter would be a fruitful use of engineering time. e.g. “I just donated $X to the livable streets movement! Want to help too? http://streetsblog.org/…”

    Also, everyone else please be advised: that basket is mine.

  • @n8han:disqus Thanks for the unsolicited idea. I like.

    I thought it was illegal to have a contest where spending money was required… there’s supposed to be a “free option”

We’ve all seen the graphs: Driving and car ownership have passed their peak in America, while transit ridership and biking are on the rise. On the ground, however, city buses still move at a crawl, bogged down in traffic. Most streets remain too dangerous for most people to feel comfortable biking on them. And the […]
