Where You At? Recapping a Community Bike Ride Through Queens
We partnered with creator and advocate, Jaeki Cho, to take a bike ride through Queens in support of organizations fighting food insecurity.
We partnered with content creator and community advocate, Jaeki Cho, for a one-of-a-kind bike ride around Queens on Saturday, October 23rd. With the support of community non-profits Woodside on the Move (WOTM) and Homecoming NY, we were joined by 70 New Yorkers as we rode through Long Island City, Astoria, Sunnyside, and Woodside on ebikes.
Our route started at MoMA PS1 in Long Island City, where riders were greeted with a complimentary pair of sneakers, courtesy of On Running, and the chance to view the newly opened Greater New York 2021 exhibition, an intimate artist portrayal of New York City. During the ride, we stopped by local restaurant Bolivian Llama Party for some fresh Saltenas and ended at Filipino restaurant, Renee’s Kitchenette, for an all-you-can-eat post-ride meal.
As we have added more stations in Queens this year and continue to grow the Citi Bike program, we're excited to tell the stories of local neighborhoods. By partnering with local nonprofits and community activist Jaeki Cho, we support food-insecure New Yorkers by driving business to local restaurants.
