Innovative New York energy supplier, Kiwi Energy, is excited to announce that it is sponsoring Transportation Alternatives’ highly anticipated annual Bike Month again this fall. Kiwi Energy is pleased to continue supporting Transportation Alternatives (TA) and their mission of improving biking infrastructure in New York City.
Kiwi Energy recognizes the importance of cycling to New Yorkers, especially now as we are dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. More and more people have begun to rely on cycling as their primary method of transportation, so it’s critical that we ensure safe cycling conditions in the city. Cycling is a mode of transportation that offers many environmental and health benefits, as it helps cut back on global greenhouse gas emissions and keeps us active. Since 1956, Transportation Alternatives has been celebrating cycling with Bike Month, during which they organize a series of activities that demonstrate the advantages and importance associated with bicycling.
Typically occurring in May, Bike Month has been changed to September due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Although this year’s Bike Month will be different than previous years, Transportation Alternatives hopes to and fully intends on bringing New Yorkers the opportunity to participate in Bike Month and to make the experience as enjoyable as prior years, while keeping public safety top of mind. As TA is committed to following federal, state and local guidelines about health and safety, the events may be subject to change.
This year’s Bike Month will feature 6 different Commuter Stations throughout the city, which will be held on September 22nd and 23rd. Transportation Alternatives will be providing individually wrapped snack and drink options as well as some information about their work. There will not be any direct contact and face coverings, gloves, sanitizer, physical distancing, and other safety measures will be in place. We encourage seasoned and new cyclists to register to participate and to show their support of such a valuable NYC organization.
“We have collaborated with Transportation Alternatives for years. This is an organization whose mission we believe can truly make a difference in the lives of New Yorkers. Bike Month isn’t just a great way for people to get involved in improving walking and biking conditions in the city, but it’s also way for all of us to get involved in creating a more sustainable and healthy city.”- Nichola Clark, VP Creative Director, Kiwi Energy.
