Bike! Bike! Northeast this weekend

It's time to break out the bicycles. The Troy Bike Rescue has organized the Bike! Bike! Northeast event this weekend, April 24-25, complete with workshops, a bike rodeo, food, a film screening and even a dance party for good measure.

From the TBR website:
We are inviting bicycle organizers and volunteers of all kinds from not-so-far-off lands to converge on our post-industrial town for a meeting of the minds on all things bicycle culture in the Northeast US. Through discussions, skillsharing sessions, and bicycle fun, we will come together to learn, share, and build something awesome.
Workshops include Welding for Dummies, tips and rules for urban riding, "upcycling" (turning non-recyclable bike parts into fun & useful things), a presentation of the Albany Bike Master Plan and more. A complete listing of all the workshops is available here.

Registration for the weekend is on a sliding scale from $10-$30, and those interested in attending should register online here. There will also be a show Saturday night at 7 p.m. featuring Blisterpack and BEWARE! The Other Head of Science.
