The State of Cycling in New York City, 2006

The State of Cycling in NYCThe Department of City Planning’s (DCP) Transportation Division hosted The State of Cycling in New York City for BikeMonthNYC 2005. The event, initiated by the Transportation Division’s Bicycle, Pedestrian and Greenway Team (BPG Team), was to help celebrate bike month and to promote cycling as a healthy, fun, affordable and viable form of transportation in the city. Held on May 18, 2005, in Spector Hall at DCP’s main office in Manhattan at 22 Reade Street, the event emphasized interactivity and communication from and between participants.

The goal of the event was to gather information and opinions from city bike riders (an under-represented transportation group) on what they feel is working well in the city cycling environment and what needs improvement. The BPG Team also wanted to connect with local cyclists and cycling organizations, get timely feedback on the present cycling environment in the city, and try to address these concerns through city planning projects. The BPG Team studies and plans various non-motorized transportation projects throughout the city as well as participating in and promoting bike-related activities.
