It’s going to be wheelie fun. The annual LIC Bike Parade will roll through Western Queens on June 6, starting at 3 pm. But the multi-faceted fun will begin inside Socrates Sculpture Park at around 11 am, when racers can repair their rides for free with RECYCLE-A-BIKE and get free helmets from the NYC Department of Transportation.
At the same time, artist-led workshops will help participants decorate their rides and there will be a bicycle swap. Meanwhile, from noon to 2 pm at nearby Rainey Park, Bike NY will offer a riding class for beginners. The parade will take off from the main entrance to Socrates and go along Vernon Boulevard to Queensbridge Park for a waterfront celebration that lasts until 5 pm.
