The New Amsterdam Bicycle Show is happening Saturday, April 30, from 10 AM to 7 PM, part of the big kick-off to Bike Month.  It’s New York’s first big bike show in years and there’s a lot of great stuff going on all day, including giveaways, gear demonstrations, an “urban bicycle fashion show,” book signings, and more.

I’m speaking on a 4 PM “Bikelandia” panel, “Building a Better City for Biking with Bike-Centric Blogs,” with Ben Fried from Streetsblog, Marc van Woudenberg of Amsterdamize, and possibly others, moderated by Caroline Samponaro, the Director of Bicycle Advocacy for Transportation Alternatives.  There will be a Q&A, so please come and give us your best.

The New Amsterdam Bicycle Show will take place at Center 548 on West 22nd Street, not far from the West Side Greenway.  I hear there will be valet bicycle parking, so there’s no excuse not to ride there!
