It was founded by Dr. Edward Fishkin, medical director of Woodhull Hospital, with the help of Recycle a Bicycle and takes neighborhood kids on bike rides to help them make regular physical activity part of their lifestyle.
"She has an effervescent personality, is devoted to the kids, and has been instrumental in helping to make the program a success,'' Fishkin said of Hernandez.
Fifty percent of Manhattan's waste ..., 12 May 2010 [cached]
Fifty percent of Manhattan's waste is brought into Brooklyn every day on about 5,000 diesel trucks to 22 transfer stations, says Woodhull Hospital doctor Edward Fishkin, exposing those neighborhoods to the asthma risks that that kind of traffic entails. Also adding to the factors, says Fishkin, is the fact that North Brooklyn neighborhoods are poorly zoned, placing residential neighborhoods next to factories.
"Specifically in Greenpoint and Williamsburg, trucks bring in raw materials and finished goods where people are living," says Fishkin.

Dr. Ed Fishkin Awarded "NYCC Lifetime Member" Recognition
During the Club Holiday Party on December 12, the NYCC Board of Directors awarded Edward Fishkin, MD, the Club's "Lifetime Membership Award" in honor of his many volunteer contributions to NYCC. The "Lifetime Membership Award" has been awarded only ten times previously to other outstanding volunteers -- see list below.
George Arcarola, Club President 2008-09: "I had the distinct pleasure of presenting the Lifetime Member Award to Ed Fishkin.
For those who know Ed well, I'm sure that the award comes as no surprise as he has been an outstanding volunteer for NYCC and the community. The award was the easiest decision the Club's Board of Directors made in the two years of my presidency. Thanks Ed!"

Dr. Fishkin has been a member of the Club for over 25 years. He has led countless rides, and is a graduate and leader of the A Classic SIG. Ed created the A19 SIG in 1999 and has been the SIG Captain for every one of the 10 years, an unprecedented run as SIG Captain of any SIG. He has also held an annual First Aid class for the Club as part of the SIGs for almost ten years. The class aims to teach what to do as a first responder or leader of the first aid team can be lifesaving and can prevent unnecessary secondary injuries.
Kids' Ride Club
When not volunteering for NYCC, Ed created and leads the "Kids' Ride Club" affiliated with Recycle-A-Bike. "Most of the children in our program have never ridden outside of their neighborhood. We ride over bridges and in the countryside. For many this is the first time out of the city. Dr. Fishkin says. "Afterwards they tell me it was the best day of their lives."
Meenal Lele, a 2009 A19 SIG graduate said: "Ed was always super helpful, knowledgeable, and available to anyone, anytime. I think my favorite memory of the spring is from a Kids' Ride Club ride. I took my little sister Kiara who was, as it turned out, not nearly as stable on a bike as she claimed. Ed took her aside without drawing any attention to make her feel bad, and after a few minutes of pointers she was riding like she'd been practicing for weeks! Ed possesses a level of caring and generosity rarely seen in anyone."
Long-time member Christy Guzzetta (founder of all the SIGs) recalls that Ed will "Fix any bike, any time -- you just have to ask.
Ed will also stop whatever he is doing to guide any Club member with a health issue."
In his "spare time," Dr. Fishkin, an internist, is the Medical Director of the Woodhull Medical and Mental Health Center and North Brooklyn Health Network."
