Congratulations to Sheldon Baker, Our Dahon Bike Winner

A belated thanks to all the loyal readers who contributed to Streetsblog’s spring pledge drive. Your donations raised nearly $30,000 for reporting and commentary in support of livable streets.

Our grand prize winner, who took home a Dahon folding bike, is Sheldon Baker. Sheldon is an urban planning grad student living in Brooklyn who had never biked in NYC before, but with a new lane striped outside his house and the Dahon in hand, he says “the cosmos” is aligning to put him on a bike.

Many thanks to Dahon for donating the bike, Bike Habitat for assembling it, and all our sponsors who donated prizes — Planet Bike, Forest City Portage, Belle Helmets, Yardstash, and Elly Blue.

Most of all we’re indebted to our readers and donors, who keep us going every day.

    Congrats on the new bike lane striped on your block. I hope every other Streetsblog reader gets a new bike lane striped on their block, soon!
