Albany Bicycle Coalition Announces Second Annual Bike EXPO

Group Kicks Off National Bike Month with May 6th Community Event

Albany, NY – The Albany Bicycle Coalition is proud to announce the Second Annual Bike EXPO to kick off National Bike Month and promote cycling across the Capital Region. The community event will take place on May 6, 2012 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Washington Park Lakehouse in the heart of Albany.

The Bike EXPO will feature a family-friendly ride on car-free park roadways, a guided tour of Albany’s bicycle amenities, exhibitions, free tech advice, refreshments, raffles and prizes. Vendors and tables will include bike shops, bicycle clubs, and advocacy organizations. The event is free and open to the public.

“We are trying to bring together cyclists regardless of their individual riding skills or their motivation for riding. We are using bicycles as a central focus for sustainable and healthy living in the Capital District. Our secondary goal is to highlight the many cycling improvements in the city – shared lanes, hundreds of bicycle racks, bicycle signage, and bicycle lanes,” states John Vendetti, event coordinator.

This event is sponsored in part by the New York Bicycling Coalition, the Pine Hills Neighborhood Association, the Delaware Avenue Neighborhood Association, and the Council of Albany Neighborhood Associations.
