WE Bike NYC Upcoming Events

Happy Hour & Bike Part Jewelry Workshop
Thursday, February 21
7-9pm, Rockaway Brewing Company/Recycle-A-Bicycle, 46-01 5th St, 2nd Floor, Long Island City, Queens

Join us at our monthly all-gender happy hour to hang out, build community and talk bikes! WE will be taking over the event space on the second floor of Rockaway Brewery, and Recycle-A-Bicycle will provide supplies and guidance for cycle craft jewelry making!

There is no food at the brewery so please feel free to bring in snacks. No outside adult beverages, please.

WE Can't Do It Without You!

WE Bike NYC is an entirely volunteer-run organization, but it still takes a bit of money for us to maintain our current standards of operation! 
If you are looking for a way to support fun, free, noncompetitive bicycle events and programming specifically for women, please consider donating to WE Bike NYC! 

Community Events

Here are some of our favorite bike events in the #bikenyc community this February!
