New York, New York (PRWEB) August 15, 2008
Bikelid Systems, manufacturer of the Bikelid, the ultimate in bicycle security, is proud to announce that it will participate in New York City's Summer Streets event on Saturday, August 16th and Saturday August 23. "We enthusiastically support New York City's efforts to encourage its citizens to use more sustainable forms of transportation and we want to do our part to make Summer Streets a success," said Chad Widensky, Senior Vice President of Bikelid Systems. Mr. Widensky continued, "We know that people have been discouraged from bicycle commuting because of a lack of a secure place to park their bicycles after they arrive at their destination. The security from theft, vandalism and damage by the elements that the Bikelid provides will, hopefully, become a major factor in encouraging the growth of cycling as a serious mode of commuter transportation. We hope that everyone will visit the Uptown Rest Stop on Park Avenue between 50th and 51st Streets (eastside) and visit the Bikelid Exhibit".
About Summer Streets: Summer Streets will take place for three consecutive Saturdays in August (August 9, 16, & 23) from 7:00 am - 1:00 pm. The route will connect the Brooklyn Bridge with Central Park and there will be recommended connections to the Hudson River Greenway, allowing participants to plan a route as long or short as they wish. This event takes a valuable public space - our City's streets - and opens them up to people to play, walk, bike, and breathe. Summer Streets provides more space for healthy recreation and is a part of NYC's greening initiative by encouraging New Yorkers to use more sustainable forms of transportation.
