This was our first bike law event for 2018, held in partnership with Concerned Citizens for Mountain Biking (CLIMB) and New York Bike Lawyers, Flanzig and Flanzig, LLP at Bicycle Playground in Huntington.

Michael Vitti presented a background on CLIMB and his advocacy work, Allison Blanchette discussed current legislative initiatives. Daniel Flanzig was the headliner here, discussing everything you needed to know about bike law, for on- and off-road biking. The pizza was awesome.

Bike Law + USA Cycling

USA Cycling has partnered with Bike Law (not a firm but a national network of lawyers who are cyclists/advocates) to provide legal resources to cyclists across the country. Several Long Island cycling clubs, shops and individuals have USA Cycling memberships, so this new partnership will provide these members with cycling legal assist, increased awareness of cycling laws, legal reform, education and bicycle advocacy. 

Bike Law New York is led by Jim Reed and Daniel Flanzig. Jim handles Upstate New York, while Daniel covers NYC, Long Island, Westchester, and Rockland. Congrats on the partnership!
