Detroit Bike City is the premier bicycle event of the year. Started in 2012, Detroit Bike City took hold of the cycling community with a bike show on a scale that Detroit had not yet seen, and it was met with great appreciation.
The show in March 2012 was created out of an idea that Detroit is the city where bicycles can compete with the long standing industry of the automobile. Detroit has always been a hub of transportation and we see the resurgence of the bicycle to be Detroit’s next big push in the way we get around.
What to expect:
Detroit Bike City 2013 is expected to more than double the first year in almost every way. Which means more for everyone! Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about new products, get a deal on last years and be a part of the growing Detroit cycling community.
Individuals wishing to sell or swap complete bicycles, frame sets, wheels, etc. may do so in the Swap Section, for NO ADDITIONAL COST, limited to 2 bikes and 10 items per person. Additional bikes for $5 per, bike tags will be available at the door the day of the event, March 16th, 2013.
CUSTOM BUILDER’S ROW
A collection of the great talent that the Midwest holds.
Showcasing Detroit small businesses that doesn’t require them to be bike-centric but represents the City and our growth.
BIGGER BMX DEMO
With more space and ceiling height, the ramp show will be expanded and there will be time trial BMX racing.
Multiple auctions throughout the day, a fun way to engage the crowd and introduce new ways to get a bike and contribute to different causes.
A black tie ballroom event overlooking the Detroit River. Ticket holders will get to preview the show, mingle with sponsors, vendors and reps, eat, drink and be charitable.MUSIC Adding a little more flavor to the bike show, there will be local bands and Dj’s gracing the stage.
With such a great response from families across the region, we will expand the safety classes, lessons, courses and have an area of youth bikes to buy/sell/trade.
Who Should Attend:
• Vendors and sponsors of all kinds will have a captive audience of people who all share in the love of bikes, and the best part of that: everyone rides a bike, we even have a saying for it.
• Racers, commuters, leisure and fitness cyclists come out to check out gear, while some just come to participate and see a good show.
• Families with bikes outgrown can swap or sell to get the bike that fits, while at the same time enjoying a day full of activities.
• There is something for everyone on every level, from the pro to the novice, to someone who wants to pick it back up. If you want a bike, want to sell a bike, want to learn about bikes, or just want to see what all the talk is about, we invite you to come share in this universal activity that crosses all borders and come together for a celebration of the bicycle.
