August 5: Ride during Summer Streets 
10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Summer Streets is an annual celebration of New York City’s most valuable public space—our streets. This year, NYCCAP is hosting a fundraising event for Break the Cycle (BTC), an effort to raise awareness and support to fund new research initiatives, increase the number of child and adolescent psychiatrists, and help ensure that children suffering in silence get the treatment they need. All members, friends, and families are invited.
A Board Member will be stationed at the three entry points to join the ride with Dr. Martin (between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.); they will be posted shortly. The BTC ride will end at West 72nd Street and riders can bike down to West 65th Street and Central Park (Heckscher Playground), NYCCAP's base of operations. (see route map) Riders, members, and guests will be able to make donations at our base of operations. Drinks, fruit, and snacks will be provided.
