A collaboration among municipalities, schools, businesses and other organizations to promote active transportation across Long Island.
Start promoting the benefits of Active Transportation to your residents, students or employees on your website, email, newsletters and social media. Our Toolkit makes it easy with sample copy, flyers and logos. .
Host an educational event either virtually or in person to promote the many benefits of Active Transportation, and build awareness about nearby walkable downtowns and recreational bike trails. Let's Move LI volunteers can help you organize the event.
Ready for the next step? Form a committee to develop and implement an Active Transportation Plan to encourage your residents, students or employees to walk and bike. Our Spotlights page can give you ideas of active transportation initiatives in other communities. Also, check out our Resources page for information on the many Long Island resources that can help!
Martin Buchman is an avid cyclist and advocate for expanded cycling infrastructure on Long Island. He is also an innkeeper!
Following a long career in teaching, he and his wife opened the Stony Brookside Bed and Bike Inn in the Three Village area of Stony Brook. The concept for their inn came to them in 2010 on a cycle trip to Italy where they stayed at hotels that catered primarily to cycle tourists. Each day started with a guided bicycle adventure followed by an afternoon spent relaxing with their gracious hosts in beautiful and natural surroundings. Upon their return, the idea of a lodging that catered to cyclists on Long Island became their vision and passion. Martin and his wife show guests the vistas and venues of Long Island’s North Shore by bicycle including the beaches, wineries, museums, nature reserves, shops and restaurants of the Three Village area as well as the North Fork or the Hamptons. All within easy access by bicycle from The Stony Brookside Bed & Bike Inn.
Martin is a board member of New York Bicycling Coalition, an organization whose mission is to facilitate cycling by providing resources, education, and consultation on bicycling in communities throughout New York State. He is also an active member of the USGBC-LI Sustainable Transportation Committee.
Martin is a strong advocate for expanded bike lanes. He has been instrumental in advocating for access to the new Ocean Parkway Coastal Greenway to Suffolk County cyclists. He started a change.org petition to NYSDOT to add a bike lane to the Robert Moses Causeway that would connect to the Ocean Parkway Coastal Greenway, a 13-mile path along some of the best beaches in the world. To date the petition has over 2200 signatures!
