May is usually when things start to warm up around here, so of course it makes sense that May is also Bike Month, when people suddenly try to rekindle their relationships with the bikes they neglected all winter (not that you had to). Whether you’re just hopping back on the bike or you rode it through our awful winter, you deserve a reward and Transportation Alternatives is giving it to you by setting up some bike commuter stations tomorrow in Brooklyn, with free coffee and snacks.
The bike commuter stations that T.A. is running tomorrow from 7am to 10am will be located on the Brooklyn sides of the Williamsburg and Manhattan Bridges, the Manhattan side of the Brooklyn Bridge (if you for some reason think bike commuting over the Brooklyn Bridge is a good idea) and at the Prospect Park greenmarket. At each of the stations, you’ll be able to get free coffee courtesy of Brooklyn Roasting Company, free snacks from KIND and some other energy-boosting drinks.
If you’re a Transportation Alternatives member (the benefits of which we’ve explored previously) you also get free accessories, and come on, who doesn’t need free accessories? If you’re jealous of said accessory gifts, you can even join Transportation Alternatives for $15 less than it usually costs, which is $40. Either way, free coffee is great, riding a bike is great, so get out there and ride and scream bloody murder at the cars that almost hit you.
