“The New York Bike Jumble is a bicycle flea market held annually in Brooklyn and Manhattan.
New York has always been a cycling town. Did you know that â€˜The Madisonâ€™, a type of track race, was named for Madison Square Garden? That Riverside Drive was once the favored place for ladies to scandalize the general populace by riding bicycles? That we used to have an annual international bicycle trade show at the old Collesium on Columbus Square?
The NY Bike Jumble is an annual celebration of the influence New York City continues to have on cycling and a market for novice and experienced cyclists. From inexpensive “beater” bikes to high end merchandise, the Jumble aims to get more people on the road, whether youâ€™re a kid or an adult. Showcasing the vitality of cycling culture here in New York, we feature NYC-based cycling artisans including Johnny Coast, Taliah Lempert and Outlier cycling clothes among others.
We invite you to visit the second NY Bike Jumble on Sunday, September 13th in the schoolyard on 4th street (between A & B). Along with the annual Brooklyn Bike Jumble and future Jumbles around the city, we are proud to carry the torch of New York City cycling.
Vendors from all over the eastern seaboard come to sell cruisers, street beater bikes, classic bikes and parts, clothing, stickers, buttons and hats. Aside form the shopping opportunities, the Jumbles celebrate the renaissance of cycling in New York, and an opportunity for people to show off their beautiful bicycles.”
