The 5 borough bike tour is an annual 40 miles closed course ride throughout New York city attended by upwards of 40,000 riders. In conjunction with the ride Bike New York holds their annual Bike Expo. The expo is where all registered riders must show up to grab their registration packet. 60,000+ attendees and over 100 brands was enough for us to pack our bags and get on a flight to New York City.
The event was great! We met a lot of people from all over. Thanks to everyone who came by the booth.
Some highlights of the show
After the show we stuck around the city for a few days an got an opportunity to visit the local shops. Thanks to everyone for the time we spent. We’re looking forward to attending the event again next year.
Walk into Banker Supply Co. in Echo Park and you'd be forgiven for thinking you'd just entered an exhibition space instead of a new bike store.
The “cycling lifestyle” boutique, as it's described by founder Nick Drombosky, opened for business last month in an 1,800-square-foot space with high ceilings, white walls and concrete flooring that showcases about a dozen bikes, racks of stylish clothing and footwear designed for everyday urban biking.
The apparel includes San Francisco-brand Parker Dusseau's dress shirts made from antimicrobial performance fabrics, and shoes from DZR — which look like regular street shoes but are designed for pedals. There are also accessories like sleek titanium locks and a special wax that adheres eyeglasses to the face.
