Bike To The Jacksonville Green Expo

This weekend the Jacksonville Green Expo debuts at the Prime Osborn Convention Center. Having out grown the it's former location the Morocco Shrine the Green Expo is way bigger and greener than expos of the past.

Unlike most events held at the convention center. You will not feel like you are being held up at gun point at the ticket window.

Admission is only $5 and kids under 12 are free.

Bike Jax is happy to support the Green Expo with Free Bike Valet Services. What greener way to arrive at the expo could there be? Ok, I guess walking is greener. But you can't take advantage of the Bike Valet if you do that.

The Bike Valet will be open during show hours of:

Saturday 10am - 5pm
Sunday 10am - 4:30pm

The Bike Valet is located right off Bay St. Just past (West) of the Train Car.

Here's the perfect Saturday for you. Get on the bike and ride over to the Riverside Arts Market. Park your bike at the Bike Valet Station. Get your art and produce groove on. Munch on some baguettes and vegan funnel cake. Hop back on the bike for the quick ride over to Convention Center. Once again dropping your bike at yet another Bike Valet and get your green on. Does the Urban Core rule or what?

Hey guys. I just found this from a link off the Jax Green Expo information and wanted to share that I will be at the Batteries Plus booth all weekend! The best part I wanted to share is that both my girlfriend and I ride our bicycles to work everyday (that it's not storming of course). I would love to ride my bike to the Expo, but since I'll be stuck behind the Batteries Plus booth, feel free to come by and say hey and share some bike stories! My name is Ernie and hope to meet some of you there.

I am glad to hear of a fellow bike commuter. Kudos to you and your wife.

I will be glad to drop by your booth. I do have to watch the parked bikes and may not get a chance to leave so if you get a chance, come on by.
