On Friday 21. July, the three day Cycling Australia Bike and Lifestyle Show opens. It has been a while since Sydney has had a bike show and this show has been initiated by the peak sports cycling body, Cycling Australia.
The show has been launched in cooperation with SBS and on the opening day on Friday they will present live streaming of the Tour de France with the ‘Yell for Cadel’ on the Alpe d’Huez stage. During the Thursday night opening presentation for trade visitors and partners, there was a positive vibe with anticipation growing for a win for Cadel Evans which would inevitably raise the profile and popularity of cycling in Australia.
The Bike and Lifestyle Show opens on Friday 22. July at 10am and continues into the event with a on-stage panel at 9pm and live Tour de France broadcast at 10pm. On Saturday 23. and Sund 24. the show is open from 10am to 6pm with tickets priced at $25.
Not only are the major cycling sports bodies present such as MTBA and BMX Australia, exhibitors also include distributers and you will see road cycling and urban cycling and commuting bikes and accessories on display. There are also MTB, freestyle and BMX demos and workshops.
Even though Sydney is currently drenched by rain, if you decide to travel to the show by bike, bike valet is provided for free.
The location is the Royal Hall of Industries at Moore Park (next to the Hordern Pavillion and Sydney Cricket Ground) in Sydney. A Brisbane show is planed for September 17-18.
