Details

We'll meet downtown and ride uptown to the Museum of the City of New York for their annual Uptown Bounce festival. Admission to the event is free and includes lots of music, performances, tours, and activities. Food will be available for purchase.

Note that there's currently an AWESOME exhibit at the MCNY about cyling in NYC that you can view for free during the event.

We'll meet in front of the Barnes & Noble on the north side of Union Square (in front of the CitiBike racks) at 5:20pm (wheels down at 5:30pm). Feel free to join later, but I'm trying to get there before the crowds get too big.

This is a CitiBike-friendly ride if you have a membership (or chose to purchase a day pass).
