1st Annual Escape From New York Day at 718 Cyclery

1st Annual Escape From New York Day at 718 Cyclery

Our friends at 718 Cyclery are launching a brand new event this March called Escape from New York. The goal of the day is to be a one stop shop for resources to get out of the city. That means you can learn about travel destinations, outdoor guide companies, and gear to get you out of the city.

Sounds like our kind of event right? We’ll be hanging out there for part of the day and are excited to learn about other groups getting folks connected to nature.
