Time's Up! NYC
These guys have been fighting the good fight for over 20 years, from way back when "environmentalist" conjured the image of bearded, knit cap-wearing dudes fighting off a whaler with their bare hands (and there's nothing wrong with that image). To survive two decades of thankless, under-funded righteous campaigning is no small thing, but Time's Up! has done more than merely survive. One huge thing they've been advocating for two decades has been a more bike-friendly New York City, and maybe, just maybe, after all the Critical Masses and Central Park Moonlight Rides and the heartbreaking Ghost Bike project, the city has begun to respond with actual bike lanes. Hats off to you, Time's Up!, for being such a big part of making that happen.
