TD Five Boro Bike Ride: Join the BGA Team!

This post comes to you from the Broadway Green Alliance

Some of our 2014 riders!We may still be able to accept a few bike riders to join the 2015 BGA Team for the 2015 TD Five Boro Bike Ride. Please note that in order to be eligible to join our team, you must be part of the theatre/green community or have some meaningful connection to the BGA.

This fun ride covers 40 car-free miles for a rare tour of all five boroughs.  The organizer of this event is the non-profit Bike NY whose mission is to facilitate and promote cycling in New York City through education and public events.

Bike NY works to encourage cycling as a safe and sustainable means of transit and recreation and provides free bicycle education classes and school assembly events. They also support the “Recycle a Bicycle” program which utilizes the bicycle as a resource to foster youth development, environmental education, community engagement, and healthy living.

It’s a great way to have a lovely, car-free ride around the city while supporting Bike NY and the Broadway Green Alliance! Team members commit to raising at least $750 for the BGA through our user-friendly BC/EFA fundraising pages.

Check out our fundraising page here.

In return BGA team members receive a guaranteed spot in the ride, an early start time, and a light breakfast before the event. The ride takes place on Sunday, May 3rd.

The Broadway Green Alliance was founded in 2008 in collaboration with the Natural Resources Defense Council. The Broadway Green Alliance (BGA) is an ad hoc committee of The Broadway League and a fiscal program of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids. Along with Julie’s Bicycle in the UK, the BGA is a founding member of the International Green Theatre Alliance. The BGA has reached tens of thousands of fans through Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and other media.

At the BGA, we recognize that it is impossible to be 100% “green” while continuing activity and – as there is no litmus test for green activity – we ask instead that our members commit to being greener and doing better each day. As climate change does not result from one large negative action, but rather from the cumulative effect of billions of small actions, progress comes from millions of us doing a bit better each day. To become a member of the Broadway Green Alliance we ask only that you commit to becoming greener, that you name a point person to be our liaison, and that you will tell us about your green-er journey.

The BGA is co-chaired by Susan Sampliner, Company Manager of the Broadway company of WICKED, and Charlie Deull, Executive Vice President at Clark Transfer<. Rebekah Sale is the BGA’s full-time Coordinator.
