With Bike to Work Week coming to an end, I hope the experience has inspired more people to see commuting by bicycle as an easy and effective alternative to mass transit.
I've made it easier for New Yorkers in finding where to purchase a bicycle, get a tune-up/repair, or simply acquire some new bike accessories. I put together a Google Map of collected local bike shops in each of the five boroughs.
Be curious and get to know the bike shops in your neighborhood. It's always a good idea to know where they are and what they offer. Not all bike shops are made equal. Each can vary in what they provide, such as brands, bicycles, parts, accessories, and services.
I'll continue updating the "NYC Bike Shops" map with more information throughout the next couple of weeks. My apologies if I didn't cover all the bike shops, but this should be enough to get you started.
