Long Island Transportation Alliance will be holding its 4th Annual Long Island Bike Parade on September 14, 2019, during Long Island Mobility Week. We are happy to report that Long Island Streets is co-sponsoring it with us this year.

This year we will be giving cash prizes for “bicycle float” — the theme of the parade is the environmental benefits of alternative means of transportation. There will be two grand prizes: one for the best “group” float ($500) and one for the best “individual” float ($200). If you are are in a school club, a bike club, or a neighborhood association or such, you may want to consider entering a group float.

The parade will follow a 2-mile loop which begins at Denton Green Park, 99 Nichols Ct, Hempstead, NY.  The parade will be on-road, but there will be a police escort. There will be a shorter .7-mile pedestrian safety walking tour for participants on foot. It will begin at 600 Clinton Ave and end at Denton Green Park. The shorter route will be completely on sidewalks. The parade routes are shown below.

There will be festival after the parade where we award prizes, write letters and and have fun!

Let’s make this a parade that LI cannot ignore!
