Bike New York's Roosevelt Island Community Outreach Manager Caitlin Goodspeed reports:
Every year the League of American Bicyclists organizes the National Bike Challenge,With a little bit more practice, maybe Yawa can try some mountain biking
This year Bike New York
created a team for new cyclists in the city called the 'Learn to Ride Team'. As an incentive to join the team, we decided to giveaway a free bicycle to the person who brought in the most miles over the course of the summer. Participants were required to log in all of their miles on the National Bike Challenge website. You could even down an app that logged everything in for you!
This year the winner was a Roosevelt Island resident! Her name is Yawa

and she's been very involved with our program here on the island. After taking our free education classes in the spring and throughout the summer, she continued to ride around the island using her husband's old folding bike. She racked up the miles and earned the top spot on Bike New York's Learn to Ride Team.
She received her new hybrid bike last Thursday!

I am very proud of Yawa. She's come a long way and is completely deserving of a new bike. I know that she'll continue to ride throughout the year!
The National Bike Challenge happens every year so we'll be doing another giveaway next season!
