Bike New York will bring the nation’s largest bike expo to New York City May 3, 4, and 5 at the inaugural New York City Bike Expo presented by Eastern Mountain Sports (www.ems.com). The expo will provide a perfect opportunity for residents and visitors to take an unprecedented look at urban cycling against the backdrop of New York, meeting the demand from both retailers and consumers for a major bike expo on the east coast. This event is free, open to the public, and will take place on the days leading up to the 2012 TD Bank Five Boro Bike Tour.
Located at the new Basketball City on Pier 36, the expo will host rider packet pick-up for the 32,000 bicyclists participating in Bike New York’s annual TD Bank Five Boro Bike Tour (www.bikenewyork.org), making it the most attended bike expo in the United States. All booth sales and additional profits from the expo will help fund Bike New York’s continuing bicycle education and safety classes.
