We will make every effort to ensure that the quality and experience of Bike Expo New York will be what our attendees and exhibitors have come to expect over the past six years.

NEW YORK April 16, 2018

Less than a month before the event, Bike New York has announced that it will move Bike Expo New York to Pier 12 in Brooklyn. Due to unexpected maintenance at Pier 36, the nonprofit was unable to obtain a permit to hold the event at Basketball City, where the event has taken place for six years.

“It’s no small undertaking to move an event that draws more than 60,000 people from all over the world, especially in this short a timeframe,” said Ken Podziba, President & CEO of Bike New York. “However, we are encouraged by all that Pier 12 has to offer and we will make every effort to ensure that the quality and experience of Bike Expo New York will be what our attendees and exhibitors have come to expect over the past six years.”

The venue is accessible by public transportation, including subway, bus, and ferry; the latter docks on site. Bike valet and car parking will be available, and there are several Citi Bike docking stations nearby.    

The Expo, which is free and open to the public, also serves as the rider packet pick-up location for the TD Five Boro Bike Tour Presented by REI, which takes place May 6; like the Tour, the event benefits Bike New York, New York City’s leading bike education nonprofit.

Among the 100-plus exhibitors are top bike, gear, and apparel brands, tourism companies, bike event organizers, advocacy groups, and many others dedicated to active lifestyles.

In addition to exhibitor booths, Bike Expo New York is packed with programming for casual and serious cyclists alike, including a fashion show, how-to demonstrations, competitions, and much more. The Expo will also feature a beer garden, food trucks, and amazing views of Manhattan, Governors Island, and the Statue of Liberty.
