The day when cyclists inherit the earth is certainly imminent, thanks in part to programs like Citi Bike, organizations like Transportation Alternatives, and bike-tastic gatherings like Bike Expo New York. Attracting more than 50,000 cyclists, the two-day event is a great place to get a gear refreshment, learn about the latest developments on the cycling scene, and commune with like-minded peddlers. Among the festivities you'll find fashion shows, BMX free rides, giveaways, and a bicycle variety hour. And while drinking and driving is not condoned, there is a beer garden onsite if you want to knock one back.
