nonprofits,local leaders & Grt.New Haven business sharing information
New Haven Bike Month was a celebration of biking culture this past May 2015 in collaboration with Elm City Cycling, the New Haven Department of Transportation, the New Haven Parks Department, and many other community members. It included over 160+ events, including over 50 large group rides, 30 bike repair clinics, 5 Open Streets events, and much more.
We had two main goals with New Haven Bike Month:
1. To promote the already tremendous number of biking activities happening in New Haven.
2. And to expand -- by neighborhood, type of rider, etc. -- what it means to be a part of the biking community in this city.
We are very proud of what we were able to accomplish and begin during this past May. Movements, however, are only sustainable with consistent and regular reflection on both the successes and weaknesses. In early June, after sending handfuls of Thank You letters to our partners, the New Haven Bike Month organizers, volunteers, and participants met up for an After-Potluck/Debrief to discuss what worked, what didn't works, future goals, and next steps. In addition, a survey was sent around to folks who were unable to attend the debriefing session.
Have feedback as well? We would be thrilled to listen, whether you heard of Bike Month of not, whether you participated in Bike Month or not, your thoughts are extremely valuable. Here is a link to survey.
