The #CyclEyes campaign successfully kicked off citywide in summer 2016, targeting areas with a high density of cyclists along the west side and east side of Manhattan’s 23rd street corridors and downtown Brooklyn where DOT distributed branded materials and info cards to cyclists. In addition, DOT is coordinating with large scale bike runs and other cycling communities to distribute #CyclEyes branded materials and info cards.
