WE hope to see all of you at our annual fundraising party on Wednesday, November 6th at Grand Victory! WE Bike NYC has grown exponentially this year, and WE need your help to keep providing FREE rides and bike maintenance education to women throughout the five boroughs! Your entrance fee will go straight to supporting more fun rides and educational workshops in the future, and plus, THIS PARTY IS GONNA BE A BLAST! In addition to MUSIC, DANCING, and general BIKE-RELATED ENTERTAINMENT, WE will be raffling off TWO BRAND NEW BICYCLES from Adeline Adeline and Brooklyn Cruiser, as well as awesome bags and other bike-related gear and accessories. Sponsors include Red Lantern Bicycles, Bicycle Paintings, Irving Farm Coffee, Planet Bike, Recycle-a-Bicycle, Transportation Alternatives, GiveLoveCycle, Chrome, and MANY MORE! *All cyclists and friends of cyclists and people who think cyclists are neat are welcome! (That means you too, dudes!)*


We are SO PROUD of the 16 women in our 
Mujeres en Movimiento program WHO JUST LEARNED HOW TO RIDE A BICYCLE THIS PAST MONTH!  With a collaboration with Bike New York, WE were able to provide an unique learning opportunity to these amazing Mujeres! Our Spanish-language earn-a-bike program in Corona, Queens focuses on teaching bicycle maintenance and repair as a marketable skill, and promotes cycling as a healthy mode of transportation in a neighborhood of NYC that is not easily accessible by public transit. Here are some photos from the learn-to-ride event! Want to learn more about Mujeres en Movimiento? Click here!

Monday, November 11

The two-wheeled life has entered an exciting new chapter in New York. The city, site of the country’s first bike path (built in 1894 along Ocean Parkway), is now veined with some 300 miles of bike lanes throughout all five boroughs. More New Yorkers than ever are commuting by bicycle and the CitiBike program has established cycling as a viable form of public/private transportation. Join us for a series of short presentations- including WE Bike NYC- exploring the recent past of New York City’s bicycling movement, offering an assessment of where the cycling movement has been and where it is headed. Reservations required. $10 for Museum members; $12 for students and senior; $16 general public.

Cold Weather Riding
Saturday, November 16
1-3pm, 718 Cyclery, 254 3rd Ave, Brooklyn

Fair-weather riding is delightful, whereas cold-weather riding can be bone-chilling when you're not prepared for it.
Join us as we discuss the challenges associated with riding in the autumn and winter and share our solutions. YOU CAN RIDE YOUR BIKE ALL YEAR ROUND!

Working with Local Governments
Wednesday, November 20
6:30- 8:30pm, TA Offices, 127 W 26th St
Want to see more bike lanes, slow zones and bike parking? Want to see that pothole fixed or attitude change? Want to have your voice heard in your community? Attend this workshop to find out how!
We will look into the mechanics of NYC government, from community boards to the Mayor's office, to shine a light on how to get involved. Meet like-minded bike advocates, and get the basic know-how on how to make some serious noise. Transportation Alternatives' is New York City's leading transportation advocacy organization. Jill Guidera, Field Organizing Coordinator, works with New Yorkers across the five boroughs to make their neighborhoods safer and restore a vibrant culture of street life.

Cranksgiving Alleycat/ Food Drive for all levels!
Saturday, November 23
12pm (High noon), Meet at Madison Square Park- corner of East 23rd Street and Madison Ave

Join WE Bike NYC for Cranksgiving 2013! If you've never done an alleycat before, but you've always wanted to try it-- now's your chance! Plus, it's for a good cause-- it's a food drive on two wheels! Cranksgiving's been held in NYC since 1999: Part bike ride, part food drive, part scavenger hunt, all fun. For more information, check out their website at

WE'll meet up at 12:00 at Madison Square Park, (corner of East 23rd St. and Madison Ave.) to make teams-- competitive, not so competitive, and places in-between! It's all about attitude, not about skill! Go with your gut! Don't forget to bring a bike, a bag, a lock, and about $15-$20 to buy food.

Then, WE'll roll over to Solar1 at 12:30 together to register, get manifests for the race, and plan routes with our teams before the 2pm start time.

Everyone is also encouraged to come to the After-Party & AWARDS ceremony at the Chrome Store and and After-After-Party at Red Lantern... WE'll be there!
