December News from WE Bike NYC

WE are almost through 2020! This has been a doozy of a year, and WE hope you’ll join us for our Holiday Happy Hour this month to bid adieu to it.

Message from Maria: I've so enjoyed putting this newsletter together for you every month for the last few years. Alas, I've decided that the time has come to pass the baton, and Allison F. will be taking over the reigns in January. Thank you loyal readers and WE shall ride together soon!

In the meantime, don't miss out on the conversations happening right now in the Female Bike Forum in Facebook:

Meet a WE Biker: Rosemary Bolich

Every volunteer brings something special to our organization. And WE count on them—whether they’re leading our rides or writing our newsletters or responding to mail or building our website. This month's volunteer is Rosemary Bolich. Get to know her here!

What was your first WE Bike NYC ride?
I'm not totally sure what my first WE Bike ride was! It was either a ride around the perimeter of Manhattan or the 2014 Cranksgiving meetup. I don't remember which came first. 

What's your favorite route?
My favorite place to ride is River Road, though there are plenty of parts of the city that I love to ride in.
 
What do you ride?
I have 4 bikes: my commuter, an early '90s steel Univega; a Cannondale road bike; a steel IRO fixed gear; and my track bike, an All-City Thunderdome, which is not getting much use this year!
 
Why do you love WE Bike NYC?
I love WE Bike because it's such a welcoming group. Becoming involved in WE Bike really opened up the city for me by introducing me to so many great people & areas/routes in the city.

Bike Tip of the Month

New feature! Each month we'll be sharing a video of a helpful bike tip. This month is How to Fit a Bike at Home. Have a favorite bike tip video worth sharing? Email us.
