Bike Expo New York 2019
May 3 – May 4 all-day

Bike Expo New York, America’s Most-Attended Consumer Bike Expo

Friday, May 3 & Saturday, May 4, 2019

Pier 36 at Basketball City (299 South Street, Manhattan)

Free and Open to the Public

Here’s a previous year’s (2017) related video as featured within youtube.

The following would be from a previous year’s press release so’s to help give you an idea as to what to expect. A newer, updated one is hopefully on the horizon.

On the two days prior to the TD Five Boro Bike Tour Presented by REI, more than 60,000 cyclists will roll through Basketball City to meet, greet, & talk shop with one another and 100+ exhibitors. Like the Tour, the event is produced by Bike New York, New York City’s leading bike education nonprofit.

Among the exhibitors are top bike and gear brands (including Raleigh, Giant, Brompton, Manhattan Portage, Giro, Bern); bike apparel labels (Primal Wear, Terry Bicycles); tourism companies (Trek Travel, Taiwan Tourism); bike events (Braking AIDS® Ride, Bike MS); advocacy groups (New York Bicycling Coalition, Transportation Alternatives, Recycle-A-Bicycle); local companies (Redbeard Bikes, Paragon Sports, Vespertine), and many others dedicated to active lifestyles (REI, Citi Bike, Momentum magazine).

In addition to exhibitor booths, Bike Expo New York is packed with programming for the casual and serious cyclists alike. Events include a fashion show featuring the latest in apparel and accessories, how-to demonstrations, and much more. An outdoor bike skills zone will feature on-bike classes from Bike New York’s free curriculum. Attendees will also find a beer garden sponsored by Taste NY and several food vendors overlooking the East River.
