All year round, bicyclists use pathways throughout New York City to reach their destinations. Have you noticed the many options for these human-powered vehicles? Are you thinking of buying one for yourself? Are you curious about the available choices, or want to know what's new? If so, take a train, walk over or use your current two wheeler and head to the 2012 New Amsterdam Bike Show on Saturday, April 28 and Sunday, April 29.

Some bikes sport bright colors.

Enjoy the ultra chic venue—Skylight SoHo at 275 Hudson Street. Walk around, hop from one exhibitor booth to another, and chat with participants. Watch a fashion show and catch up on the latest bike apparel trends. Drop by the tent at the Back Terrace and sample cold pints of Dutch Lager, compliments of Grolsch Beer. Don't forget to get some eats from Vandaag and grab a fresh cup of coffee via Brooklyn Roasting Company.

The second annual consumer-centric bicycle show benefits Transportation Alternatives. And with over 60 exhibitors, including bicycle makers highlighting their latest rides, you'll most likely find something that suits your needs.

Adeline Adeline, a specialty boutique, showcases their bikes at their TriBeCa storefront. Visit their booth to learn about the newest store offerings.

Among the many exhibitors is Adeline Adeline, located at 147 Reade Street in TriBeCa.

Or stop by Bicycle Habitat, another exhibitor for more choices. How about a new helmet, gloves or other accessories?

Bicycle Habitat has various locations throughout NYC.

Regardless of what ride you decide upon, there are tons of options since bikes come in various styles—appropriate for racing, plus numerous practical versions for recreational and commercial uses.
