We’re headed to two great bicycle events next month and hope to see you at one of them!
Philadelphia Bike Expo, November 7-8
The Philly Bike Expo is a celebration of cycling. Now in its sixth year, the event promotes the fun, function, fitness, and freedom to be found on two wheels. The Philly Bike Expo creates an environment that fosters relationships between the cycling community and the dedicated companies and organizations that are the foundation of bicycles as a lifestyle. The event is there for you to admire the artisans whose craft enables us to ride two-wheeled art, to applaud the activists whose tireless efforts further our cycling infrastructure, and to explore cycling as a fun and efficient transportation alternative.
Seminars include advocacy and innovation from SRAM; core workouts for cycling; the story of one person’s ride across America on a 1880s bicycle; building long-distance trails; stainless steel as a frame material; tandem cycling; current design trends in off-pavement bicycles and much more.
Exhibitors include custom framebuilders, bicycle manufacturers, creators and distributors of cycling accessories and components plus transportation alternatives, outdoor travel, and various companies and organizations that promote a healthy lifestyle and sustainable planet.
An all-access pass is $20 (or just $8 to wander around for one day) and includes free indoor bike parking.
San Francisco Bike Expo, November 21
Founded in 2008, the San Francisco Bicycle Expo represents the myriad interests of the Bay Area’s vast cycling community, from fashion and apparel to backyard bicycle fabrications. The SF Bike Expo is a local event that happens annually and has been produced for cyclists of all types.
