Event: NYCC Webinar: “Cycling in the Age of Covid,” with Steve Vaccaro

Date: Tuesday, August 114, 2020
Location: Virtually, via Zoom Video Communications


6:30 – 8:00 p.m. Program

Program: Join us for a talk with leading bike attorney and advocate Steve Vaccaro of the Law Office of Vaccaro & White, on the impact of the pandemic on recreational and commuter cycling.  Steve speaks for himself,  but his views are informed by his experience as a board member/advisor of New York Cycle Club, Bike New York, Transportation Alternatives, and StreetsPAC; his fourteen years as a lawyer primarily representing cyclists and other crash victims; and his forty years as a New York City cyclist. Topics will include: the pandemic-fueled bike boom; the risk of disease transmission during cycling; the government’s pandemic transportation policy; and some practical tips on cycling in the age of covid.  Steve will leave plenty of time for Q&A at the end in the hopes you will contribute to a robust and open community discussion!

Program will run from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., with time for questions at the end.
