What is it?
For the eighth straight year, Chicago area cyclists will be able to come together to browse and buy bikes, bike parts, bike clothes and accessories as well as discover a wide variety of companies, non-profit groups and organizations with bicycle related services.
Who is it for?
For attendees, this is an ideal way to get ready for the spring, stock up on cheap cycling gear and reconnect with cyclists on the cusp of the spring weather.
For individuals with a bunch of extra gear, this is the perfect time to unload things you no longer use, that another cyclist would appreciate.
For bike shops, this is an ideal opportunity to introduce cyclists to your shop, sell overstocked gear and last year’s models and designs, dent-and-scratch items, old display pieces, brand new designs, shop-branded gear and all manner of bikes, parts, clothing and accessories.
For non-profits, bike-focused companies and organizations, this is a great venue to spread the word about the work you do and network with your local cycling community.
When is it?
