Long Island Transportation Alliance will be holding its 4th Annual Long Island Bike Parade on September 21, 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 6.5-mile loop which begins at Hofstra University and then circles through scenic Eisenhower Park before returning.  Part of the parade will be on-road, but there will be a police escort. There will be a shorter 1.2-mile loop for participants on foot, those with small children, or those who simply preferred a shorter ride. The shorter route will be completely on sidewalks and bike trails. Maps will be linked to soon.

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!
