What do you get when you mash up bike-friendly Buffalo and Cinco de Mayo? Cinco de Cycle! Looking to promote bike friendly measures and the virtues of yummy Mexican food (hottest cuisine in Buffalo at the moment), Yelp is hosting an event that it says will tempt the taste buds and help to provide awareness for National Bike Month (May).
Part of the spicy culinary adventure will include the Phorittos (a bowl of pho in a burrito) – an item that is said to be solely unique to Buffalo. In addition, Poutine & Cream (soon to open on Hertel) will be serving up waffle taco ice cream.
As for the cycling aspect, there will be bike workshops, which means that you can get your ride tuned up at the event.
It’s a celebration of bikes, beer, food, music and Buffalo.
- When: Friday, May 5th from 6-9pm
- Where: 500 Seneca St, Buffalo, NY 14204
- Why: Raise awareness for National Bike Month, connect people with fantastic local businesses and creative cuisine, collect donations at the door for GoBike Buffalo, and check out the beautifully renovated 500 Seneca building.
