This year fashion week goers can bike from one fashion show to the next in designer bikes thanks to The Fashion Center.

Even if you’re not a fashion goer you can still partake in the Fashion Week excitement. Anyone can borrow a bike free of charge (with a security deposit) from any of the stations along Broadway. Maps of quick, safe bike routes will be provided. The bikes will be available during Fashion Week, September 8 – 15.
I ride my bike to work everyday and I’ll definitely be taking a ride with one of those bikes!
