The Bike Expo New York 2012
The first annual Bike Expo started yesterday, and there's still plenty of time to pedal through the weekend and get in on the action.
Biking has been New York City’s central means of transportation, besides the MTA. You can find bike messengers, pizza deliverymen, freestyle riders, and your everyday fitness cycler zipping by on the streets of NYC. It’s about time we had an expo to celebrate and teach people about the history of biking. Everyone can find something they need at the first annual Bike Expo New York. You’ll have the ability to learn about different types of bikes with hands-on seminars. The venue will be designed to emulate NYC streets from crosswalks to simulated bike lanes.
This event is presented by Eastern Mountain Sports. BE NY will feature vendors, live-performances, and bike gear giveaways. Check out vendors like King of New York Clothing at booth #403, showcasing their new T-shirt designs with a 10% discount to customers.
The event kicks off Bike Month and is held before the TD 5 Borough Bike Tour on Sunday.
