We talked with Bina Bilenky, the Event Director for the Philly Bike Expo. With a dad who is a framebuilder, she’s been surrounded by bicycles her entire life. After receiving her Bachelors degree in Recreation, Park and Tourism Sciences at Texas A&M University in 2010, she’s been working on the Expo ever since. She says, “It is definitely a labor of love and we are excited to see it grow each year. Keeping our fingers crossed for good weather this year!”
