In September of 2016, Gaby O’Shea was struck by a vehicle while riding her bicycle near New Paltz and suffered life-threatening injuries. Local artist Ryan Cronin created the ‘Expect A Bike Ahead’ painting as a fundraiser to aid in Gaby’s recovery. Subsequently, yard signs were made using the image and have been distributed throughout Ulster County.
The YMCA is continuing this campaign to increase drivers’ awareness of people on bikes. Thanks to funding from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration through a grant from the New York State Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee, the YMCA has a limited number of signs available for pickup at the Y. The signs are free and are intended to be placed alongside roads in Ulster County. If you are interested, please click on the link below.Get a FREE Sign!
