Calling all Cyclists! Help launch Summer by Rail in New York Penn Station - this Sunday!
May 13, 2016
Sunday, May 15th - 2:00 PM
NARP is teaming up with the East Coast Greenway Alliance and national bicycle advocates to launch NARP's Summer By Rail campaign! We're sending our intern, Elena (and her bike, Stevie!) on a cross-country, 38-day rail trip using multi-modal transportation to show the power of a Connected America. They'll visit 20 cities in 15 states, and document each step (and pedal) of the journey.
The very first leg of her adventure will feature a tour of Manhattan's bikeways led by Greenway Alliance staff. Following Elena's tour, NARP will hold a kick-off event at 2:00 PM in the Rotunda of Penn Station in New York City (just look for the big National Rail Network map, and the NARP logo). Elena and NARP staffers will gather to talk about what's in store for the next two months of her grand rail adventure
"We would not be in the position we’re in if it weren’t for the advocacy of so many of you, over a long period of time, who have believed in passenger rail, and believe that passenger rail should really be a part of America’s intermodal transportation system."
