Don't let the snow fool you - warm weather is just around the corner! 

We are looking forward to a busy season on Roosevelt Island this year. Next week we're launching the BuildingxBuilding Initiative, a Bike New York 
effort to get more Roosevelt Island residents involved with our free bicycle education classes and programming as participants, volunteers, and paid instructors. 

We're also in the midst of planning our 2nd Annual Spring Kickoff Party which will happen at the Capobianco basketball court on Saturday, May 30, 2015. The pop-up bike shop will be back for the event along with the bike decorating station, free bike raffle, Bike Guard program, and more! 

In addition to our normal schedule of classes at Sportspark and Capobianco basketball court, we've got some new classes on the horizon for kids and families. These classes have been designed to meet the needs of the Roosevelt Island community, a place where growing families are planting their roots. 

For more information about Bike New York and the Roosevelt Island Pilot Program, please visit the Roosevelt Island Blog on our website. You can also read about us in the Main Street WIRE (Volume 35, Issue 12). 

See you on the island!
