Help us break last year’s record turnout (153) for May’s Bike to Work Day breakfast, Friday, May 16, 7:30-9:30 a.m. in front of the Devil’s Gear on Pitkin Plaza, Orange Street between Court and Chapel. Free breakfast, courtesy of Elm City Market, giveaways, CT Transit bike rack demonstration, and a chance to schmooze with other cyclists and policy makers. Rain or shine (hope for shine!)
Ansonia resident Pierre Lallement filed the patent for the first pedal-powered bicycle in New Haven some 149 years ago, when he could be seen pedaling his contraption around the Green. Each May we honor this momentous invention with a bike ride to Ansonia.
The ride departs Lulu’s Coffeehouse at 10AM, passing through the New Haven Green around 10:15 (meet up at either location), following roughly this route.
The ride will conclude in Ansonia with the town’s third annual Festival of Bikes. We hope to see you there!
Then join the ECC Rock to Rock team to help raise money to buy taillight display space. $250 will put a PSA like this on the back of a bus for four weeks.
