Claire Nolan is going to start the contest at the downtown Starbucks with cyclists, driver (in one of Albany’s very first Smart Cars!) and a CDTA bus rider.Â Yours truly will be waiting at Stuyvesant Plaza with my stop watch and timing each rider as they come in.
Starbucks is offering free drinks to all participants and Steiner’s Sports is graciously co-sponsoring this event by offering an array of fabulous prizes to our winners.
Rules:Â all cyclists are welcome on rides sponsored by the New York Bicycling Coalition, members and non-members alike.Â All riders must wear helmets. A rider will not be allowed on a ride if he/she does not have a helmet. Riders are expected and required to follow all traffic rules and regulations. Examples are stopping at stop signs and red traffic lights, as well as riding single file when being overtaken by traffic.Â Remember:Â Share the Road.
For the past four years, the cyclist has proven to be the fastest mode of transportation when commuting in rush-hour traffic.Â Â Let’sÂ champion the bicycle and make it 5 years in a row.
