NYC Century Bike Tour 2002:
September 8, 2002
T.A.'s 13th annual NYC
Century Bike Tour brought together 4,000 riders from New York City and far
beyond for a sunny, fun day of exploring Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and The
Bronx from the best vantage point-their bicycles. This was T.A.'s largest NYC
Century yet, and we owe our success in large part to the help of our
incredible volunteers. From planning and preparing the route to phone banking
to helping at rest stops to marshaling to providing medical support to setting
up the Central Park Start at 2:30 am and so much more, volunteers made the NYC
Century happen. Thanks to all of you!
T.A. stages the NYC Century Bike Tour to encourage daily cycling in New York City, raise money to support our advocacy work for cyclists and pedestrians and attract new members. And it works. We raise a significant percentage of our yearly budget and bring in a flood of new members while having the pleasure of sharing our vision of a truly bicycle-friendly city.
The NYC Century is also a
great way to further our advocacy goals of improving the bicycling and
pedestrian environment. We work with the Parks Department, the Department of
Transportation, the Department of Sanitation, the Triboro Bridge Authority and
other city agencies to fix street, greenway and bridge hazards.
All the great volunteers--we couldn't do it without you!
