Come to the Westchester Cycle Club’s evening dinner program on Thursday, Feb. 28, at the Tuscan Grille in Briarcliff Manor to learn about what’s happening with bike advocacy in the region, as well as the latest on the bicycle pathway that will be built on the new Tappan Zee Bridge.
Brian Coneybeare from the NY state Department of Transportation will talk about construction of the new bridge, and WCC’s David Wilson will discuss the latest in bike advocacy.
Wilson is working on an update regarding the missing link in Elmsford that will tie together the South and North County trailways, and will talk about the regional efforts to obtain a fair share of state transportation funding for biking improvements.
Please bring ideas about how can better partner with the state DOT. It is crucial for the DOT to develop a link between the bridge pathway and the off-road network of north-south trails in Westchester both the Old Croton Aqueduct and the South County Trailway.
Held at the Tuscan Grille, 518 North State Road, in Briarcliff Manor, from 6:30 to 10 p.m., it’s $25 per person and the buffet includes a variety of items: choice of pasta, mixed vegetables, roasted red potatoes, green salad, a chicken selection and vegetarian options.
