Proclamation Excerpt
…Whereas: H.G. Wells said, "Every time I see an adult on a bicycle, I no longer despair for the future of the human race." New Yorkers second this sentiment, and take this opportunity to extend their gratitude to NBG, Recycle a Bicycle, and Transportation Alternatives, home to Noah Budnick, the dedicated activist who suffered injuries while working on behalf of his fellow cyclists..
