May is Bike Month, 5 Boro Ride, Bike Expo and more.

This weekend kicks off Bike Month and the five boro bike tour, where 30,000 + people wind their way through all five boroughs on Sunday. (May 3rd)

There are tons of bicycle related events all month.

A good place to look for events postings is: bikenyc.org/events

Starting tomorrow, May 1st is the Bike Expo.

This has traditionally  been the registration pick-up spot for the 5 boro ride and has now morphed into a whole convention for bicycle retailers and related products. Plus food, music and bicycle demos.

The event is free and open to all:

May 1st (10am-8pm)

May 2nd (91m-6pm)

All the way east in Manhattan

Pier 36-Basketball City (299 South Street)

A number of vendors have contacted me about stopping by their booths at the expo. One of them is Priority Bicycles who is making slick looking urban commuter bikes with nice details like a belt drive:
   

 

All for around $400.00.
If your going to the expo, stop by booth #218 to take a look and for a pricing special.
  
To get to know the communtity better they are having an after party on May 3rd, after the 5 boro.
Here is more detail from them: 
  
AFTER PARTY: 
Sunday May 3rd,

Priority is participating in the Five Boro Bike Tour. As a New York-born brand, Priority wants to get friends and community together for some drinks and celebration.  Before the ride heads over the bridge to Staten Island, the Priority crew will stop in Brooklyn at The Woods – hence the FOUR BORO After Party.  Open to riders who want to relax after the long ride and non-riders who want to have some fun, The Woods has great food and drinks.  Priority will also be raffling off prizes to help raise money for Hashtag Lunchbag – a non profit dedicated to raising awareness and reducing hunger.
