Brooklyn design center 3rd Ward is giving away a bike with every membership! Pushing the limits once again, 3rd Ward has announced Greens Bikes, a campaign designed to facilitate the most effective and environmentally conscious use of an urban environment. This call for action will get more bikes on the streets and more green on the brain. 3rd Ward's custom-designed, lime-colored bikes allow their riders to comfortably move through the masses, while actively reducing air pollution and adding a little life to the city's color pallet.
On May 3rd, to launch this campaign and to celebrate their 3rd year in Williamsburg, 3rd Ward’s throwing a massive block party on Stagg Street. 3rd Ward’s Green Bikes Birthday Block Party will be equipped with bike competitions & performances, bands and music videos from Moviehouse, free workshops, badminton, a photobooth, drinks, BBQ, live screen-printing and more! The block party, which runs from 2pm to 8pm, is an official NYC Bike Month event and includes partnering organizations: Make Music New York, Moviehouse, Transportation Alternatives, Goldsprints, NY Bike Share, Bamboo Bike Project, Empire, Affinity Cycles and more.
3rd Ward is the solution to the complex urban problems faced by freelancers and artists in NYC. For the first time, the overlapping economies and marketplaces that make up the creative industry are all under one roof. 3rd Ward’s 20,000 sq. ft. facility provides creative professionals affordable access to four photo studios, a wood & metal shop, a digital lab, classes, events and office space; making their projects, careers and artistic dreams possibilities. "These bikes are just one step further in our commitment to enriching the lives of our members and improving the community at large. Everything we do is designed to enhance the way people work, live and play in an urban environment," says 3rd Ward Director Jason Goodman.

Goodman, who rides his own Green Bike to work, is a master at finding creative solutions to big problems. 3rd Ward provides all the space and tools necessary for success at no cost to its members’ creative freedom. In addition to the brand new bike, membership includes access to health insurance, classes, a free subscription to Time Out New York, admission to 3rd Ward events, unlimited use of co-working space and access to a huge network of creative, active and successful professionals - all for as little as $39 per month.
