On the second Friday of the month, the Transportation Alternatives Queens Committee leads a bike pool along Queens Boulevard. This street is a critical yet dangerous part of many Queens bike commutes. By riding in a group each month, pool members aim to educate drivers that bikes are on the street, make a statement about the need for a bike lane, and give the borough's bike commuters a safe ride home.
I joined up with the ride last month. The next bike pool is tomorrow -- Friday, June 12.
