Prospect Park Bike Day Presented by Citi Bike
Get your gear on at our first annual Bike Day presented by Citi Bike. Join Citi Bike, Bike New York, Prospect Park Alliance and partners for a day of empowerment and biking.
First, is your child ready to join the fold? Sign up for our Kids Learn to Ride led by Bike New York: prospectpark.org/learn-to-ride-kids. (Note: registration must take place via this web link; please register with your child’s name and birthdate.)
Has your child outgrown their bicycle? Take part in our Kids Bike Swap and Helmet Fitting. Come early to swap your child’s too-small bike for a model that fits. We’ll also be providing free helmets while supplies last!
Did you know a majority of New York City cyclists are men? Join Citi Bike and Bike New York’s Gear Femmes to learn more about mentoring and programs for women bikers as we work to #CloseTheFenderGap, and sign up for a Bike Path ride class especially for women: prospectpark.org/gear-femmes. (Note: registration must take place via this weblink.)
New York City is also filled with a number of organizations that support riders of all abilities. Join Citi Bike for a demonstration of hand-cycles for adults and InTandem for a demonstration of tandem cycling for children and adults with special needs: people with disabilities can be introduced to tandem cycling and InTandem services; people new to cycling can get a feel for riding without the fear of falling by riding as a stoker (person on back); experienced cyclists can learn how to ride as captains (person on front).
Stop by the event to learn more about bike safety in the park, and sign up for a free one-month trial of Citi Bike, as well as bike maps and other fun giveaways at the Citi Bike station. Join Prospect Park Alliance for a raffle of a Micro Kickboard Balance Bike for the pre-riders in your life, and other fun prizes to better experience the park.
