A massive handmade bike expo is coming to the Knockdown Center (the most Brooklyn thing about Maspeth, Queens) and cycling enthusiasts won’t want to miss out.
From August 15 to 17, locals are invited to head to the 50,000-square-foot Knockdown Center for the second annual Bike Cult show, which brings purveyors of custom, handmade bicycles to one central location. This year, the show will kick off with an opening night showcase and party on Friday, August 15 at the Rapha Cycle Club New York in the West Village. Then, on Saturday and Sunday starting at 10am, visitors are invited to head out to the Knockdown Center for a public exhibition where they can check out all the unique bikes while chowing down on bites from Monk’s Meats, Txorizeria, and Home Frites. On Saturday night, there will be a special Bike Cult gathering and after party at the Brooklyn Bicycle Park (S. 3rd St. & Kent Ave.) in South Williamsburg.
Tickets will set you back $10 per day if you’re over the age of 12 and $15 per day if you want access to a special exhibition about famed bicycle frame builder Dick Power at the City Reliquary in East Williamsburg (free Bloody Mary included!).
Everything kicks off on Friday, August 15 at 6pm. Check out the full list of featured exhibitors here and feel free to buy your tickets at the door.
