Ride Brooklyn – Spring Cycling Expo
Come join the Brooklyn bike community for a weekend dedicated to all things bike. In addition to the best prices on all bikes, clothing and cycling accessories, Ride Brooklyn will host clinics and guest speakers to support commuters, racers and bicycle-loving families.
The full schedule is here, but it kicks off tonight at 7 with Ladies Night, featuring cycling tips and gear for women. Other highlights include bike registration with police from the 78th precinct on Friday and guests such as Hayes Lord, Director of the Bike Program at the DOT, who’ll be there for conversation on Saturday. There will be other clinics and tire-changing lessons over the weekend plus big sales on everything. If you’re thinking about buying a bike, this is the weekend to do it.
I can’t say enough good things about this shop. My wife and I bought her bike there and even though we weren’t buying the most expensive bike in the store we were treated as well as if we were. It’s also a great bike shop for people with kids. Oh, and they offer a great discount to Transportation Alternatives members, so join already.
FYI, I don’t accept advertising yet on this site, so this is an honest to god testimonial. Even if you can’t stop by this weekend you should check them out.
Ride Brooklyn is located at 468 Bergen Street between 5th Avenue and Flatbush.
