Please share this note widely with all your friends and ask them to go to this is an article by me in the Daily News (http://nydn.us/dOW8rH) and leave their comments. Better yet, if you are a New Yorker, please write a letter to the News editor (directions below).
Bike lanes, as you know, make people healthier, neighborhoods nicer and the planet happier. More bike lanes in NYC--since it sets trends--will mean more bike lanes around the world.
One simple way to help support bikes lanes in NYC is to leave comments of support on the Daily News page where the article is. So please do so.
To do one better, write a letter to the Daily News editor (see directions below), especially if you're from NYC, saying that you agree with my article and that you wholeheartedly support Sadik-Khan and Bloomberg's bike lane program.
Even if your letter is not printed, you will help convince the Daily News editorial board to get behind the bike lane program. This is a case where writing a letter really can make a difference.
If you leave a comment or write a letter (or better yet, do both) please leave a comment here to let us all know. Perhaps, if you can, leave the link to your comment so we can all give you props!
Directions for writing letter to Daily News editor:
