Before the party starts we will draw well deserved attention to Ivan Vamos, former New York State Deputy Parks Commissioner and NYBC Founder.   The extraordinary range of Ivan's work on behalf of bicyclists, and pedestrians, dates back at least forty years and includes relentless advocating for the multi-use path on the New Bridge and other bridges in NYS, the creation of the multi-use path plan throughout the 5 Boroughs of NYC, and innovative analysis documenting the health care and other "costs" related to bicycle crashes in our state, now the lowest ranked state in the nation in this category.  Ivan also provided the seed funding for the new in 2017 Vamos Fund For Bicycling Development and we will celebrate the work of the first three grantees.
