Brooklyn Bike Patrol (BBP) is looking to the future when Jay Ruiz, its founder and president, will be "back in the saddle." Jay is recuperating from the two heart attacks he had just about a month ago, and he's eager to get BBP on the road again to escort people home.

More volunteers will be needed to "pick up" people at subway stations and walk them home as the patrol continues to expand. Volunteers must

  • live in Brooklyn,
  • have their own bike to ride to the subway stations,
  • have no police record, and
  • be willing to volunteer at least one weekend night every other week.

To volunteer and to learn more about how Brooklyn Bike Patrol functions, call Jay at (718) 744-7592 anytime after 6:00 p.m.
