The Seattle Bike Expo is no more. But as we reported previously, the folks at Cascadia Events have come to the rescue. They have taken over the lead, changed the name to the Seattle Bike Show and moved it to CenturyLink Field Event Center in Pioneer Square.
The two-day show features bike performances, talks and, of course, exhibitors showing off their latest products and services.
It costs $10 to get in (free under 18). Entry also includes access to the Travel Trips & Adventures Expo, which is sharing the space. Apparently, they have a giant indoor zip line, which sounds pretty cool.
You can see the complete lineup at the Seattle Bike Show website. Here are some highlights from the press release:
Standout features at the Seattle Bike Show include:
- Pump Jam, powered by Sweetlines, brings the mountain biking experience indoors for all ages and abilities; this pump track is hosted by world-class mountain bike rider and nationally certified coach, Kat Sweet, founder of Sweetlines. Helmets are provided for fun and safety.
- The Performance Area featuring mountain bike professional and stunt rider, Ryan Leach, professional cyclist and author ‘Bobke’ Roll, the SnoValley Unicycle Club and others.
- “Two-wheeled eye candy” at the Classic Bike Show, a rare display of some of the most spectacular and historic bikes in the country. Lovingly preserved in original condition, or miraculously restored, it’s a must-see display for biking enthusiasts and neophytes alike.
Guest speakers and presenters include Stephanie Sims, “Exploring the International Selkirk Loop”; former STP Director Will Chin, “STP Orientation – Preparing for the Seattle to Portland Bicycle Classic”; Obliteride Exective Director Amy Lavin and guests, “The Power of Two Wheels”; Erik Moen, PT, a national authority on bicycle biomechanics and injury intervention and prevention, and others.
