  1. [music playing... metallic sounds]
  2. I'm a biking ambassador for transportation alternatives. As ambassadors, our mission is to provide positive face for safe cycling in the city.
  3. We are out there on the streets to have conversations with cyclists about how they can contribute to the safe environment.
  4. [Bike's bells ringing]...
  5. We have a biking rule and street code which is educational material all used for bicycling.
  6. Always yield to pedestrians, I'm going to say, pay attention to the traffic, and never on the side walk.
  7. For the longest time, actually, I did ride a bike. I'm twenty three now, I actually learned how to ride a bike around twenty-one.
  8. And the reason I ride a bike now is because I love it. It's a great way to engage in the environment, to engage in the surrounding, and your community.
  9. It's a great way to....I didn't have a personal or emotional space in the city.
  10. If you were a new cyclist, I would recommend that you do what's right.
  11. Do right the green way. It's the great way to be safe, to enjoy yourself, and to grow and meet people.
  12. I thought it was a great shame that biking wasn't available in my community when I was growing up.
  13. And one of my personal great motivations is to bring biking to Chinatown to the lower East side.
  14. Because in the end, it's not just about biking, it's about having a more vibrant community, it's about having safest streets.
