In January, the North Country Healthy Heart Network became a member organization of the New York Bicycling Coalition (NYBC).
NYBC serves the State of New York and its residents by promoting the safe use of the bicycle and walking as modes of transportation, sport, recreation, health, environmental protection, energy conservation, tourism and economic development. The organization advocates for the rights of all bicyclists and pedestrians throughout New York State by supporting safety, education, and access for road and trail users.
The Heart Network’s mission is to design, develop and implement strategies to decrease the incidence of cardiac disease, stroke, and related chronic disease in Northern New York State. Increasing physical activity through walking and biking is one of the best solutions to chronic disease which is why we fully support the efforts of NYBC to make NY a more bikeable and walkable state.
