“Bicyclists Have Equal Rights to Road Space as Car Drivers”

The thing about equality is that it’s both for rights and responsibilities. Just how car drivers and pedestrians must follow traffic rules, so do bicyclists.
Ronald spoke during the Hoboken City Council meeting to invite the Council members to the #‎Ride4Safety‬ on Nov 14th, 2015 at 11AM. It’s a group ‪‎bicycle‬ ride organized by Bike Hoboken on Washington St to advocate for a protected bike lane. Here is the link to the event page on Facebook: https://t.co/FyU7NosIFv The group will meet at the corner of River St and Hudson Pl, next to the Hudson Bike Share station outside the PATH Train entrance. The bicyclists will get some basic tips for safe bicycling by the Hoboken Police bicycle patrol officers, and they will also be joining the group ride. The street will not be closed to cars since the purpose of #Ride4Safety is to show that bicyclists have equal rights to road space as car drivers do.

Nov 14th #Ride4Safety: Bicyclists Riding Together for a Safer Washington St

We can all agree that Hoboken streets should be safe enough for an 8-year-old bicyclist and an 80-year-old pedestrian. That’s why Bike Hoboken is pushing for a protected bike lane in the redesign of Washington Street; it is the first step towards a friendlier street for everyone. We invite you to join us for Hoboken’s #Ride4Safety: a group bike ride on Washington St on November 14th to advocate for a protected bike lane.
  • We’ll meet 11AM at the corner of River St and Hudson Pl, next to the Hudson Bike Share station outside the PATH Train entrance.
  • We’ll get some basic tips for safe bicycling by the Hoboken Police bicycle patrol officers, and they will also join us for the ride!
