Join Sue's Helpers

You can the change the world…

But we recommend you start small. Joining Sue's Helpers will not only get you off the couch, but it will make you feel better too! (And, as an added bonus, you're improving NYC cycling at the same time.)

Here are just a few ways to help out, but we've got more. Just call Susan at the T.A. office (212-629-8080) today. Special thanks to everyone who's gotten involved so far. We're making serious progress.

Good Will Ambassadors
Join T.A. and the men and women of the NYPD Manhattan Traffic Task Force Bike Patrol as we fire up the Give Respect / Get Respect campaign in '99. Elucidate and educate with a smile... and perhaps delight in watching lane-blocking motorists get real tickets (we civilians will be handing out fake ones). To wayward cyclists we'll distribute trilingual educational flyers. For upcoming dates, check the web or call Susan at T.A. for details (212-629-8080).

Eradicate Perils
The Hazard ID team is gearing up for another session of inventorying roadway defects - everything from sewer grates that snare your wheel to your basic bike-eating pothole. We'll meet Saturday, March 13 at 9:30 am at the intersection of 14th Street and Broadway (Southeast corner, by the Virgin Megastore) and travel up 1st Avenue to 42nd Street.

Two Wheels to Fun
Get involved in the coolest week of the year - Bike Week 1999! It's the last Bike Week of the millennium - don't miss out on the fun. Lead a commuter ride, stopping at a Krispy Kreme doughnut laden breakfast on the way - or, serve up doughnuts and helpful T.A. materials at a breakfast with your favorite Borough President. The possibilities are endless - call Susan or Ruth at the T.A. office (212-629-8080).
