I’m a daily bicycle commuter and enthusiast that promotes cycling whenever I can. This past summer, I had connected with a grassroots organization called FixCity.org after hearing about their efforts to get more bike racks installed in Brooklyn. Just yesterday, I was asked to participate in a TV spot for the website. Here are the results!
FixCity.org combines two of my favorite things: bikes and the internet. Its a website that allows users to suggest new bike rack locations by posting an address and a photo of the suggested location onto the website’s map. The data is sent over to the Department of Transportation and helps them plan their next install locations. The creators of the Fixcity.org are based in New York City and are currently running a pilot program of the site in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg and Greenpoint neighborhoods, also known as the ‘epicenters’ of NYC bicycling.
