Links to New Year's Ride

Every year Time's up has its annual New Years bike ride, a pleasant environmentally friendly alternative to standing for hours in Time's Square in the freezing cold. This year the ride was about 200 strong and another 200 came out to see fireworks in Central park, where the ride ends.

Here is a link to Fritz's pictures of the event.

The New York Times ran this article before the event.

Here is a little feel good statement for Time's Up director Bill DiPaola,

Part Bike ride, part New Years Eve Party, the 10th Annual Time's Up!
New Years Eve Party Ride gathered over 400!

This year Time's Up! stepped it up by adding more meeting points
including Brooklyn and Queens. We also emphasized the importance of
starting off the new year with your community with by supporting
time's Up! and the environment. We had over 200 celebrating bike
riders and we met up with another 200 people in the park, which added
up to an amazing party with fireworks at the end.

The timing posed a huge challenge, however Everything seemed to come
into place perfectly and the bike ride and party rocked on thanks to
the Rude Mechanical Orchestra (who even trailered their instruments up
from the Time's Up! space!). Special Thanks to Rich, Barbara, Judy,
Curtis, Peter and everyone else who contributed. None of this would
have been possible without our volunteers!
