Bike Riding IRL: Real Talk from Real New York Riders
Ladies and gentlemen, we promised you a slate of events for National Bike Month–and we’re delivering! Earlier this month, we announced our May 3rd Bike Month Kickoff Party in partnership with Transportation Alternatives, who’ll be busting the bike myths that keep people from riding, and now we’re ready to reveal our follow-up event…
What is Bike Riding IRL?
On Tuesday, May 10th, for Bike Riding IRL: Real Talk from Real New York Riders, we’ll bring together four New Yorkers from different walks (rides?) of life, who’ll be leveling with us about what it’s really like to ride a bike in NYC.
The event is 100% FREE and includes complimentary food and drinks, a fun photobooth, and some fab giveaways. Plus, anyone who RSVPs and attends is entered to win a Brooklyn Bicycle!
Our National Bike Month panel of New York riders includes…
- George Hahn (top right), lifestyle blogger who sees a good bicycle as the preferred mode of transport for a discerning modern man in the big city
- Jeffrey Moser (top left), longtime Brooklynite whose bike is both his commuter vehicle and his weekend recreation
- Jeffrey “Countri Bike” Tanenhouse (bottom right), who last year rode a Citi Bike from New York to California
- Courtney Williams (bottom right), the 5-borough event organizer for Black Girls Do Bike, whose goal is to create a community of black female cyclist leaders
…and will be moderated by performer and writer Rachel Bouton, herself a bike rider.
These Bike Riding IRL panelists will be speaking with us about everything from how much they sweat to how much they save–and anything else inquiring minds in attendance might want to know. We’ll be featuring each of these folks on this very blog as we get closer to our event, so check back regularly for more info.
