With school right around the corner, Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation and its Center for Healthy Neighborhoods will kick off its third Bed Stuy Bikes event this Sunday, August 28th at the Marcy Plaza Playground from 10:00am till 2:00pm. There is something for everyone in the family with activities including free backpacks and school supplies, bike safety workshops, guided rides, tennis lessons, health screenings, cooking demos, face painting, crafts, healthy snacks and a live DJ. Bikes for those 16 and older will be provided by Citi Bike for those who don’t have one.
Past Bed Stuy Bikes events have attracted hundreds of residents and are part of Restoration’s broader role as convener for the Partnership for a Healthier Brooklyn where they are working with 100 community based organizations to increase opportunities for active living and access to healthy foods, making healthy choices the easy choice for Brooklyn families.
The event is made possible through a score of partners including the Better Bike Share Partnership, Citi Bike, The Coca Cola Company, Fulton Bikes, the NYC Department of Transportation, the NYC Department of Health, Transportation Alternatives, Fulton Bikes, Interfaith Medical Center, and Woodhull Medical Center to name a few.
