campus area bike ride

28 01 2010

For Pratt’s “Green Week”, I’d like to organize a bike ride with the help of NYPIRG, and Student Affairs.  It’ll be great to get new and skilled riders out there together, checking out some local spots around Pratt.  Word on the street is, Pratt’s president has always wanted to have a Pratt bike ride.  Seems like this is the perfect opportunity.  I will certainly need the assistance of SGA and the Student Affairs office to get this to happen smoothly.

Right now, it looks like the ride will be held April 1st, after my advisor, CJ, completes his bike workshop and TA gives helmets away to students. A great way to welcome the Spring weather…

We’ll need a couple of people to support the riders, and we should be sure there is at least one bike pump and a few spare tubes and I’m sure Pratt will need students to fill out some waiver.

So here’s what I need help with: Where should we ride? The ride can’t be too long, should be on a safe route, and must start and finish at Pratt Brooklyn. This is so students that are new to riding in New York can feel confident completing the ride and getting themselves home. I don’t want to leave anyone stranded. Anyone have any suggestions? I was going to try to add a wordpress “poll” on this topic but I can’t figure it out  so for now, let me know your thoughts but submitting a comment. I need suggestions asap…
