Another great ride with the NYC Progressive Council which always turns out bigly for all of these rides dating back to 2014, which thanks to StreetsPAC is when these rides began.

This year saw three separate rides converge at City Hall. We decided to start pretty early on the Upper East Side with Council Member Ben Kallos who has been helping to lead the call for better biking for his constituents and those who ride thru his district.

We met up with several dozen others at Union Square (and lots of other cyclists who decided to join up on the ride on their daily commute) enjoying a mostly stress free jaunt to City Hall. Upon arrival there we met the Brooklyn delegations and at one point eight City Council members and NYC DOT Commissioner Polly Trottenberg were outside addressing the very large group.

Another fun day of bike riding. Thanks to all.
