ING DIRECT USA TO CELEBRATE NEW YORK CITY BIKE MONTH BY HOSTING FREE EVENTS FOR BIKERS

WHAT: With Spring in the air, there is no better time for New Yorkers to tone up their physical and financial fitness. ING DIRECT USA – the nation’s largest direct bank – wants to help by encouraging New Yorkers to bike to work.

In May, ING DIRECT USA will celebrate Bike Month to recognize bikers for choosing a healthy and money saving mode of transportation. New Yorkers can save time by not sitting in a cab or on the subway and save money on those pesky fares that can add up along the way. To help bikers save money, ING DIRECT’s 3rd Avenue Café will host free events for area bikers to learn more about innovative bike products and bike safety, and win bike-related prizes from Manhattan Portage, creator of the original New York messenger bag.

Events will include:

May 21st: Bike to Work celebration featuring live music, a sale on Dahon Speed D7 bikes and bike trivia with chances to win bike repair kits, water bottles, whistles and free drinks from the ING DIRECT Café from 8am to 10am.

May 22nd: Join Bfold Bikes, a local bike company specializing in folding bikes, for an “Easy Bike Maintenance 101” seminar and a chance to win a messenger bag from Manhattan Portage from 1pm to 3pm.

Bikers commuting to work can enjoy a free ‘biker breakfast’ every Friday in May. Stop by on your bike and receive a free coffee and pastry compliments of the ING DIRECT’s 3rd Avenue Café.

Free New York City bike route maps will be available at the Café.
