This was our first bike law event for 2018, held in partnership with Concerned Citizens for Mountain Biking (CLIMB) and New York Bike Lawyers, Flanzig and Flanzig, LLP at Bicycle Playground in Huntington.

Michael Vitti presented a background on CLIMB and his advocacy work, Allison Blanchette discussed current legislative initiatives. Daniel Flanzig was the headliner here, discussing everything you needed to know about bike law, for on- and off-road biking. The pizza was awesome.

Shop Local For Bikes & Gear

Think a big-box store will give you good bang for your buck?

We strongly urge you to #shoplocal for holiday bikes and gear. We cannot stress enough how expensive less expensive bikes and gear are when you buy at a big chain / "big box" store. Quality and life is less, you miss out on perks of free adjustments and discounts or free tuneups.
We have 2 shops in Long Beach - we recommend Local Bikes for cruisers and unique accessories. BIKE LOCKS and LIGHTS are fantastic gifts for Christmas and for those we'd steer you over to one of the bigger - but independently owned- bike shops that have more buying power with vendors. You've got great shops like Sunrise Cyclery Merrick Bicycles and Brands Cycle and Fitness or Krebs cycle - we'd recommend any shop that also works with cycling clubs as they tend to also support bike advocacy, so we only shop there. 
Got a commuter in your life? CitiBike memberships - they do annual or you can now get a pack of rides. We heart Citibike for holiday and birthday gifts!
