Ladies, get ready for bike month

Nona Varnado of The Bird Wheel organized a whole program of events geared (get it) for the ladies during May’s Bike Month.

This year she’s at it again and looking for submissions:


OPEN CALL: Ladies Biking Events For Bike Month NYC
The Ladies Program:
A Diverse Series Of Events Aimed At Promoting Cycling, Community, Education & Good Times.

Are You A Local NYC Based Organizer-Type Who Wants To Put On A Bicycling Themed Event?

Last years events included movies night, introduction workshops, maintenance and manicures, garden parties, fashion events, comedy & burlesque and rides. This year we’re aiming to make it more diverse and involve more organizations. Shops, clubs, groups and individuals are all encouraged to respond with ideas or availability. Not the organizer type? Volunteers are needed to help make things awesome. It’s basically the most fun you can have in May.

Submit ideas, availability or any help you can lend.

  • Please view this video of my testimony,, before the NYS Joint Legislature Finance Committee: Budget Hearing on Transportation. Testimony was given on behalf of bicyclists throughout New York State.

    I am the Chair of the New York Bicycling Coalition Legislative Committee ( and this testimony was given on behalf of the Coalition.

    If nothing else click on the link (so that You Tube records the number of hits this video receives. The New York Bicycling Coalition wants to be able to tell Legislators, we received 5,000,000 hits on the video. With 5,000,000 hits the Legislature along with the U. S. Congress can no longer ignore the needs and wants of bicyclists.

    Please tell your friends via email, telephone calls, text messages, twitter, etc. to view the video (title: Bicyclist Speaks at New York State Legislature) & go to the New York Bicycling Coalition web site to read the full text of the statement.
