Time’s Up is rounding out Bike Month with a bunch of great events:

“This Saturday is the SECOND ANNUAL DOGGIE PEDAL PARADE!
Pooches & People for Pedal & Planet
Sunday, May 31st at 2 p.m.
Meet at the Tompkins Square Park Dog Run (near Avenue A and 9th Street)

Bring your dog and bicycle to the Second Annual Doggie Pedal Parade. We will use baskets and trailers, listen to doggie tunes playing on the soundbike, and end the parade at Washington Square Park for a doggie celebration complete with donated tofu hot dogs, dog shaped vegan cookies, other snacks, drinks, and playtime for all.
This ride will highlight bicycles adapted to transport pets as well as the benefits of adopting homeless animals. Cyclists without dogs are encouraged to ride dressed as their favorite animal or join the Safety Pooch Patrol to help escort the ride.

For more information on the ride and the 5/28 Pup Your Ride Workshop to get your bike ready for the parade go to:
