While Valentine's Day has passed, the sentiment holds true. Taking a moment now to participate will go a long way.
Happy Valentine's Day, Bike Tarrytown Friends:
Roses are red
Violets are blue
Bike lanes will boost Tarrytown
And Sleepy Hollow too
Our ballad for a Broadway bike lane is in this month's Hudson Independent. The op-ed lays out why a protected bike lane is needed and how it'll work. The Chamber of Commerce wrote the "counterpoint" piece, supporting the lane if challenges get addressed. It's on page 8 and at http://thehudsonindependent.com/pointcounterpoint/
Express your deepest desires of safely biking on Broadway. Tarrytown's Trustees need love and reassurance that you'll to ride to town when a protected bike lane is installed. Have your kids write too!
Worried about a long distance relationship? Don't be! The one kink shared by all Tarrytown merchants is people spending money. Let the Trustees know you'd do that when it's safe to bike here.
(Details are in the "Guidance" section, at the end of this message.)

If you're super busy, just say you want a protected bike lane built along the east side of Broadway. Provide a quick reason why if you can.
