About us

Boogie Down Rides is a celebration of bicycling in the Bronx. It includes educational events, community visioning sessions, and group rides.

Boogie Down Rides firmly believes in the power of bicycling as a way to promote active transportation, recreation, and exercise. We support and build bridges of existing efforts to expand safe cycling while connecting communities and people in the process.

This project is organized by meta local collaborative, an initiative by artists Elizabeth Hamby and Hatuey Ramos-Fermín, and includes a broad coalition of individuals and organizations.  Community partners include Bike the Bronx, Bronx River Alliance, Velo City, Bronx Health REACHNew York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Partnership for Parks, Transportation Alternatives, and New York City Department of Transportation.

This project started as part of the exhibition This Side of Paradise, presented by No Longer Empty.

Bicycling is art.
