My NYC Biking Story: Bin Feng Zheng

This spring, Transportation Alternatives launched a program to promote safe cycling throughout the five boroughs. Bin Feng Zheng, 23, works for this program as an NYC Bicycle Ambassador. Bin started riding a bike just two years ago, so he knows all about the challenges of learning to ride. He's also tri-lingual -- speaking Chinese and Spanish -- which helps him promote responsible riding and the benefits of bicycling in the diverse neighborhoods where he grew up. He says one of his big motivations is to bring biking to Chinatown and the Lower East Side, "because in the end it's not just about biking, it's about having a more vibrant community, it's about having safer streets."
