5 Borough Bike Club Meeting: Ask the Bike Shop Pros

The 5 Borough Bicycle Club's March meeting will be an exclusive after-hours opportunity for club members, accompanied guests and prospective club members to ask Charlie McCorkell and his mechanics about bikes and accessories (or even what it takes to run a small business!) and to get recommendations for the Spring season.

Charlie is a civil engineer by training and a NYC cyclist and cycling advocate for over 35 years. He is an Executive Director emeritus of Transportation Alternatives.

If you have specific questions for Charlie, email cmcbike @ bicyclehabitat . com before the meeting with cc: programs @ 5bbc . org.
