This past Sunday, September 16, NYBC’s Deputy Education Director, Tom Polk, provided bicycle education to more than 400 riders to riders on the Orange County “Country Roads” annual ride in the Lower Hudson Valley. 

What do you get when you cross 8 cans of spray chalk, 52 traffic cones, and about 80,000 daily State Fair visitors?

No, it’s not a joke. New York Bicycle Coalition staged a pilot event as part of the New York Experience at the State Fair in Syracuse.

The next time you’re in a big city with a bike-sharing program, and you’re worried about riding a shared bike on unfamiliar busy streets, remember a new study out that reports that bike sharing, which has seen rapid growth in the last 10 years, has not led to a death of any cyclists yet.

The New York Bicycling Coalition, a great organization that advocates for safe bicycling policies on all levels of government (I am proud to be a board member),recently began publishing a series of stories on state-specific highlights of traffic laws that affect bicyclists.
