Pedal Powering Earth Day concert in Central Park, launching Rock The Bike NYC!

What’s up bike people?

Rock The Bike will be sending out the Bike Vibe from the heart of New York City on Sunday, April 26. Come help power the music on our new multi-person Biker Bar pedal power rig. We’re teaming up with the Central Park Conservancy on an awesome Earth Day event. We’ll also be bringing pedal powered Spin Art for the kids, and hooking up local smoothie business Tropicalia with Fender Blenders.

Rather than truck gear to New York and back, we’re building our most advanced Pedal Powered Stage to date, and then leaving it in New York in the capable hands of Rock The Bike NYC. Now they can bike to music, arts, and cultural events all summer long, carrying all the gear, spreading music, community, and bike love in New York. In addition to the Pedal Powered Stage, Rock The Bike NYC will also have Mundo Cargo Bikes and Fender Blender Bike Blenders for test rides and rental, and the Down Low Glow for night rides.

The first social sunset cruise is coming up this Thursday in Brooklyn. Please pass it on to your New York friends.

The event at Central Park is a free, all-ages daytime event that will offer gardening, crafting, tree-climbing, walking tours, live music, and the occasional bike rap from Fossil Fool on the Choprical Fish.

Ride to the park, kick back, and celebrate Earth Day with some DIT (Do It Together) entertainment. Meet the talented crew of Rock The Bike NYC. Check out their hilarious MTA Service Specialists parody site, protesting the recent fare hikes on the New York subway.

Time: 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm EDT
Place: Naumburg Bandshell (mid-Park at 72nd Street)
