Update: Rain, rain wouldn’t go away, so the “Get Fancy Bike Ride” has been postponed until March 31. Please check back for further details!
With the New York City winter seeming to drag on forever — and the bike lanes feeling a little wind-blown and forlorn — don’t you find yourself craving a little sociability? Just in the nick of time, the “Get Fancy Bike Ride” this Thursday, February 24 provides an opportunity to meet up with fellow cyclists for a gallery hop with stops in Soho, the West Village and Chelsea, followed by drinks.
Organizer Kim Burgas, an artist and cycling enthusiast who mounted a similar event last December, says the rides are meant to “promote cycling as a fun way to get around town and participate in cultural activities.”
Check the flier below for details, and be sure to share it with your friends! Event duration is about 3 hours, with the majority of that time spent looking at art, Burgas says. Post-ride bar venue to be announced. Don’t forget your helmet, lights, lock and bell.
Although fancy attire isn’t required, won’t it just make you feel better to wear your best?
