Nadette Staša, 44, is a casting director, biking fanatic and six-year volunteer with cycling advocacy group Time’s Up! (times-up.org). She decorates her wheels with flowers and tinsel, helps organize bike protests and leads regular rides to promote peace; the next one takes place in Manhattan on April 26.

About this ride
“Peace begins on a personal level, with peace of mind,” says Stasa, who thinks it’s important for serenity-seekers to escape the city for an afternoon. Accordingly, this 19-mile route begins at the Staten Island ferry.—Rebecca Dalzell
