I was tremendously proud when Bike New York asked Virtuous Bicycle to conduct a session at the Bike Expo. “Group Riding 101, How to Ride with 32,000 People” offered tips for safely enjoying (and completing) the Five Boro Bike Tour.
Here’s a little scrapbook of the event.
Bike Expo New York ran for the 2 days leading up to the Five Boro Bike Tour. Over 100 vendors demonstrated and sold their innovations to the 32,000 riders gearing up for the tour.
The Learning Zone was a small theatre where biking related classes were held throughout the day.
Riding with 32,000 others has its special challenges. These smart riders were hungry for the info.
How to take a right turn with 32,000 of your best biking buddies.
Point taken – Lines at bike repair can be long!

All that, and I Marshaled and rode the tour to the finish line in Staten Island.
GREAT WEEKEND ACCOMPLISHED on the 5BBT!
