    Bikes Bring Hurricane Relief for Staten Island (1 of 5 videos)

     
    Hundreds of NYC bicyclists have stepped up - or rather rolled up - to bring relief to remote, hard-to-reach areas of Staten Island.

    This past week, I biked from Manhattan to Staten Islands with a group of friends and volunteers all carrying loads of hurricane relief supplies. On the way, we encountered several other groups of bike-borne volunteers with the same idea: get the supplies in to remote, hard to reach areas. These videos tell the story of our bike-borne aid mission to the people of Staten Island.

    The current gas shortage, combined with traffic closures in devastated areas, have made bike-borne relief extremely helpful.

    In this first video, we discover kindred spirits on the Staten Island Ferry. Shelly Mossey, of Urban Mobility, has organized a bike caravan to bring aid over using trailers and cargo bikes. So of course, I had to go talk to him and find out what he was up to.

    (Apologies for the funky camera work... this is my first i-Report.)
