Bikes Heart Strikes

Bikes Heart Strikes

TIME'S UP!, an environmental and bicycle
advocacy group says, "Bike the Strike!" To encourage bicycle
riders during the strike, we're organizing the following
events and services for bicyclists for the duration of the
strike:

Bike-Pools
Inspired by the City-enforced car-pools, TIME'S UP! has
organized bike-pools for cyclists to ride together to and from
work.

At 9:00am every weekday of the strike, cyclists will meet at
Brooklyn side of the Manhattan Bridge to their bike-pool to
Manhattan. The route will take them up the 6th Avenue bicycle
lane and will end at 59th Street & 6th Avenue, picking up and
dropping off cyclists along the way.

At 6:00pm every weekday of the strike, cyclists will meet at
Columbus Circle, Manhattan (under the statue of Columbus) to
their bike-pool back downtown. TIME'S UP! volunteers will be
pedaling a sound bike so that riders can enjoy music along the
ride.

Free Bike Repair
TIME'S UP! volunteers will be at the Manhattan side of the
Brooklyn Bridge at 7:30am with a bike pump for those
under-inflated tires and oil for those rusty bike chains.
TIME'S UP! will also have a bicycle mechanic at the Brooklyn
Bridge to help riders deal with any other bike issues.

The TIME'S UP! storefront space at 49 E. Houston Street (between
Mott and Mulberry) will be open from 4pm-9pm every night of the
strike for free bike repairs and workshops. TIME'S UP! is
encouraging New Yorkers to bring in their old bicycles and our
volunteers will help make them rideable.

Inexpensive Used Bicycles for Sale
TIME'S UP! has many inexpensive used bicycles for sale for new
cyclists, at the storefront space at 49 E. Houston, from
4pm-9pm. Used bicycles are for sale starting at $40.00.
