RWAHostsBikeBonanza
The event took place on July
17 on Rockaway Freeway be-
tween Beach 59th Street and
Beach 56th Place, where traffic
was shut down for the day. The
elevated A-train track made this
the perfect spot for the event,
as it is protected from rain and
shaded from the sun.
DOT sent a team of expe-
rienced staff and volunteers
who gave out more than 260
free bicycle helmets to children
and adults. Each helmet was
expertly fitted to ensure that
everyone got the right size.
Recycle-A-Bicycle hosted a
“bike swap” for families to bring
their children’s old bicycles and
exchanged them for new ones fit
for their kids.
Later in the afternoon, a trained
instructor from Bike New York
led “a learn to ride” class for kids,
as parents and relatives watched;
whoopingas childrenrodeupand
down the Freewaywith their new-
ly repairedbicycles andhelmets.
High school students from
RWA’s Shore Corps summer ser-
vice learning program spent the
day manning RWA’s smoothie
bike, which was a huge hit with
local kids. The blender is filled
with the makings of a strawber-
ry banana smoothie, and as the
bike’s pedals move, so do the
blades of the blender, and voila, a
fresh smoothie ismade.
This event was a part of a larger
community engagement initia-
tive begun by RWA called Project
Underway. Project Underway
seeks toactivelyengage residents,
business owners, transit advo-
cates, and government agencies
in working together to develop
a plan to better utilize the Rock-
away Freeway under the MTA
A-Line to support local commu-
nity initiatives and events like the
Queens Bike Bonanza.
The week prior to the bonan-
za, all students in the RWA Shore
Corps and Aqua 101 middle
school summer program were
also lucky enough to receive their
own brand new bikes through
the generosity of Bike New York
and Bloomberg LP. As a result,
students can be seen traveling by
bicycle each day to RWA’s new
home at theRISECenter at Beach
59th Street (Photos by Giles Ash-
ford).
