THE STREET PROJECT is the story about humanity’s relationship to the streets and the global citizen-led fight to make communities safer.

Digging deep into the root causes of traffic violence, the filmmakers engage a diverse array of experts including street historian Peter Norton, city planner Jeff Speck, and urban design expert Mikael Colville-Andersen. These expert interviews are interwoven with the stories of real people working to make their communities safer. 

Asbury Park Complete Streets Coalition is dedicated to its mission of transportation equity in Asbury Park including equitable access and safety for all users of Asbury Park streets.

May 18th ride

This is how we roll. Asbury Park Slow Roll is a loosely, or better described as a friendly, unorganized group of anyone who likes riding a bike to cruise the city and nearby neighborhoods, on a sort of monthly basis.
Tonight we had members of Asbury Park Music Foundation, so we rode to Springwood Park where Monday concerts will begin soon. Also pointed out the beautiful @kulafarm and @macrobitesmarket.
Our community is beautiful. Join us next month to explore more.
We’re doing Tuesday evening rides during the summer season to avoid traffic. #toomanycars #slowroll #asburyparkcompletestreetscoalition #communitybikeride

 Asbury Park Monthly Slow Roll Saturday, 11.14.30

It was a beautiful day for a bike ride with a lovely group of people on every type of bike! We rode a little way out of the city and rolled back though Asbury Park experiencing various types of bicycle infrastructure – painted bike lanes, signage, bollards, sharrows. We braved taking the lane, watched out for driver doors opening. We endured a bit of impatient driver honking, and an aggressive close pass by a pick up driver as we prepared to turn left on Main St. Drivers have a lot to learn.
Bicyclists are here to stay! Onward!
In Honor of Road Traffic Victims 🙌❤️🚲

The Slow Roll is BACK! Tuesday, Oct. 13th, 6pm
