Biking

Fresh air, exercise and a less-harried trip are the promises of biking or walking. These are great options where facilities exist and if your travel distance is manageable.

511NY Rideshare provides tools and services to help you make your walk or bike safe, convenient and enjoyable. The Bike Buddy matching service, for example, can help you find a walking or biking partner. To sign up for Bike Buddy matching, simply check the box "Would you like to find a Bike Buddy?" in your "Ridematching Preferences" in your profile.

 

For more information, call 511 and say "Rideshare." Out-of-state travelers can call 888-GO511NY (888-465-1169), select Hudson Valley region and then say "Rideshare."

 

 

Bicycling Resources

Biking is healthy for you and the environment - and it's a lot of fun!  Enjoy the warm weather, go for a ride! 

If you're a beginner, the New York State Department of Transportation has some great resources on bike safety and commuting to get you out on two wheels in no time.  Your local YMCA may have some basic training classes too.
