Big Weekend For Bike Fanatics In The Tri-State

NEW YORK (CBS 2) — As the weather gets warmer, seasonal bikers are returning to the street in time for spring’s numerous outdoor cycling events.

More than 30,000 bicycle fanatics will take to the streets on Sunday morning in the annual Five-Boro Bike Tour.

But first, cyclists will attend the brand new “New Amsterdam Bicycle Show” in New York.

Jerry Portwood, of the show, and Paul Steely White, of Transportation Alternatives, sit down with CBS 2’s Cindy Hsu to discuss this weekend’s biking events and the city’s growing bike culture.

    And every time you write cars in a comment, it gets highlighted and links to a car ad. Point made.

    Cars cars cars cars cars.

    Enough with the “fanatics” label. Are people who drive giant cars to buy a gallon of milk fanatics? Sometimes people just like the convenience and fun of their chosen transportation, car or bike.

    Although, interesting that the ad that runs before this is for a car/limo service. Too many bike fanatics and you might lose that revenue!
