Don't whine and cluck, ORGANIZE! Run for City Council.

Bring biking councilors to City Hall, send message that we will bring bike culture to city streets and out The Avenue!

Putting in bike lanes or reducing parking can be a politically dangerousmove, especially in New York. But for the past year and a half, political action committee StreetsPAC has been fighting for pro-pedestrian, pro-biking and pro-transit candidates in NYC and Albany — and gaining ground.
In the 2013 city elections, 13 of StreetsPAC’s 18 endorsed candidates won in competitive primary elections (including Mayor Bill de Blasio). In state primaries last month, three out of five StreetsPAC-backed candidates won.

  1. Bike lanes are great for all involved, motorist, pedestrians, and bikers. but we also have to remember we are a small city, not New York or Albany. if you get too pushy, will cause those against you to get stronger..... so far it looks like a great plan for our North Avenue. i am in favor of the lanes as well as the the three lane street . . just asking both sides not to be shovey ... that causes both sides to drift apart and in a fight ... causing hard feelings. but also lets hold everyone now to what was passed for now..
