  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-

  Section  1.  The  economic  development law is amended by adding a new
article 21 to read as follows:
                               ARTICLE 21

  S 501. STATEMENT  OF LEGISLATIVE INTENT. THE LEGISLATURE HEREBY RECOG-
NIZES THE ROLE THAT CYCLING PLAYS IN LOCAL TOURISM. INCREASINGLY,  BICY-

LATION TO ESTABLISH A  WORKING  FLEET  OF  RENTAL  BIKES  AT  CONVENTION
BUREAUS, VISITOR CENTERS AND POINTS OF INTEREST THAT ARE HEAVILY VISITED
BY  TOURISTS  AND PROFESSIONALS. ADDITIONALLY, THE LEGISLATURE WISHES TO
PROVIDE A MECHANISM TO CONNECT VISITING PROFESSIONALS AND TRAVELERS WITH
INFORMATION AND MAPS OF BICYCLING ROUTES AND DESTINATION POINTS.
