Toronto cyclists are no doubt eagerly anticipating spring, but in the meantime, they can get themselves geared up for the warmer weather by checking out the Toronto International Bicycle Show at the Direct Energy Centre.
The Toronto International Bicycle Show will feature over 150 exhibitors, including manufacturers, distributors, retailers, and clubs. There will be a special travel section for those wishing to organize bicycle trips to all corners of the globe, as well as a test biking zone for those who need to buy some new gear before they leave. Freestyle mountain bike riders will be performing shows throughout the duration of the event, including several stunt competitions and a BMX jam. There will be an extreme riding show put on by pro cyclist Trevor Bodogh, who will show off his amazing cycling skills on an obstacle and ramp-filled course. Best of all, for those brave enough to ride their bike to the show, there will be free bicycle parking!
The Direct Energy Centre is located at Exhibition Place, which can be accessed by taking CitySightseeing Toronto’s hop on hop off tour to stop # 17, and then taking the TTC’s 509 route the rest of the way.
