Bike Month

New Haven Bike Month

Milone & MacBroom is a proud sponsor and partner of New Haven Bike Month, a month-long celebration of biking culture in the City of New Haven. As a partner, Milone & MacBroom will be facilitating two pop-up bike lane demonstrations at the Wheels on Whalley and Fair Haven Art’s and Ideas Open Streets events. These unconventional bike lanes are a technique of tactical urbanism. Milone & MacBroom will build a bike lane on a closed street for a day, and show citizens and community members what it would look if this facility were to really exist. This will create a great learning environment where Milone & MacBroom can engage with the community, and talk about the benefits of Complete Streets and Multi-Modal Transportation.

 

As part of this process, Milone & MacBroom will be working with a class of students to teach about what it is like to be a transportation planner and engineer, and how to help design and build the pop-up bike lane in Fair Haven. Milone & MacBroom will also be financially backing the event, and donating four bicycles (two adults, and two children) to be raffled off to attendees who engage in the process.
