Car-less Long Island's 2nd Annual Bike-to-Work Parade!!

April 29, 2017

Join us for the Second Annual Bike-to-Work Parade and Festival on April 29, 2017 at 9 AM.  Participate to show your support for a more walk-able and bike-able Long Island!

Prizes will be given for the most impressively decorated bikes and best costumes. So have fun and be creative! Free tee-shirts for the first 50 registered attendees. (Scroll to the bottom for the registration form.)

The parade is perfectly free, but we suggest a $10 donation to help defray expenses. (You can donate here.)

The parade is a 6.5 mile loop, beginning and ending at Hofstra's North Campus around Eisenhower Park.  There will be a police escort for safe riding. (See the map of bike route here and map of Hofstra here.) There is a shorter walking route for those who want to see a more walk-able and bike-able Long Island, but do not want to bike themselves or are not ready to bike a 6.5 mile loop. (Map for the walking route to come soon.)

Stick around afterwards for the bike to work festival with music, speakers and prizes.  It will be fun for the whole family!

Feel free to print and distribute the flyer for the parade, which you can find here

If you are interested in volunteering to help or in sponsoring the parade (with money or donated prizes and registration gifts), please contact Sylvia via the contact form here.
