Nz Bike Expo

Postby dwgknz on Wed 7/Jun/17 6:17am

A lady I work with is trying to get NZs first bike Expo off the ground. They're going to hold it in Christchurch and have just got someone onboard to start marketing it. I think it's aimed for next year. She has a lot of excitement for it so could turn out to be something cool.

Would be cool if it was like NAHBS... but could be cool anyway

I think it'd be cool however big it is/becomes.

If nothing else it provides a focal point for bikers to get together, one giant national piss-up.

Yeah man, the dude from Welcome Rock trails is doing a spiel on the Sunday. We're riding it in about 3 weeks time and am keen to hear about it. Seen the doco, good history down there.

Who went? How was it?

I didn't make it. Too many family commitments and lack of interest from said family members, damn them all...

That said tho, had fun with master 10 at Kyle Park BMX track, me on the fat bike... And I got a good ride in Saturday evening.

I went on Saturday afternoon. What impressed me most was the amount of bikes at the bike parking outside. Heaps of people rode there.

That's brilliant. I'd thought to myself what a silly place to hold a cycling event, in one of the least cycle friendly locations in Chch. But then someone reminded me about the southern motorway cycle track etc...
Still, if it'd been near the CBD I'd probably have made it along
