Day of the Dead is a holiday that originated in Mexico to celebrate friends and relatives who have passed on. Join us for a Day of the Dead ride as we celebrate cyclists, both present and past.
We will bike and dance our way through the East Village, visiting ghost bikes,honoring the memory of those who have been killed, and demanding safe streets so that future riders can ride peacefully in a sustainable city. Wear bright, festive colors and bring gifts of paper flowers and sugar skulls to offer the dead in their journey of the infinite bike lane!
