As usual…lots. Its bike month so there is no shortage of bike events and fun ways to spend your time showing off your new ride you just got in T-town or dug out of the closet for the 30,000 strong 5 borough bike tour. Don’t forget Al Sharpton is going to be shutting down the city today in protest of the Sean Bell Verdict and there is no better way to get around a crippled city then by bicycle.
