In its second year, The New Amsterdam Bicycle Show continues to draw inspiration from one of the globe’s most bike-friendly cities, showcasing thousands of road bikes, dutch bikes, and other styles while promoting safe urban cycling. The bike display sprawls across three stories and more than 33,000 square feet, and bike giveaways throughout the weekend arm patrons for stylish riding or perfecting their slow-motion Lance Armstrong impressions. In Bikelandia, the show's seminar portion, authors and experts present on cyclist issues such as New York’s bike lanes, and a fashion show flaunts the trendiest bike outfits and accessories. As they tour the festivities, patrons can sip complimentary pints at the Grolsch Lager beer garden and nosh on mouth-watering eats. The show also benefits Transportation Alternatives, a group that advocates for stronger biking, walking, and public-transit infrastructure.
