    Steve, good work identifying a great NFP to work with. Transportation Alternatives has done some great work in this area, and I think they will agree to work with you if present it right. I would love to brainstorm with you about various product ideas based on the idea of trying to encourage people to ride bikes; of course, in big cities like NYC, it is sometime very dangerous. There is a group called Ghost Bike that creates monuments at places in the city where a bike rider was killed. It's quite spooky and effective. There are many possibilities for where your project can go, so you need to do some serious research and really understand the problems that face cities that try to get people to switch to bicycles...
