"With a bike equipped with saddlebags holding more than 1,300 postcards, a group of cycling enthusiasts and environmentalists visited Gov. Andrew Cuomo's second floor office on Tuesday to urge him to put money in his upcoming state budget plan for improvements such as bike lanes.

Nadine Lemmon of the Tri-State Transportation Campaign said federal cutbacks have left the state with less money for initiatives such as dedicated bike lanes and pedestrian byways. The advocates are seeking $20 million in the next budget and a total of $100 million over five years."
