Toronto International Bike Show 2015
This weekend, Exhibition Place is hosting the world's largest consumer cycling event---the 29th annual Toronto International Bike Show. The three-day show will feature the newest, fastest and most extreme innovations in cycling skills and technology.
And, if that wasn't incentive enough, there's the OPUS Bikes This Is My OPUS photo booth contest. Choose your favourite from OPUS's Urban line of bikes, pose for a photo with it and be entered in a draw to win the bike you picked.
Housed in the Better Living Centre, the show will run from noon to 9 p.m. this Friday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. Among the attractions is the Toronto X-Jam, where the world's best BMX riders will compete for $20,000 in prizes. There will also be a flatland BMX freestyle competition and an extreme trials demo.
If ramps and tricks aren't your thing, you can check out the Great Lakes Winter Classic---an all-bicycle polo tournament. And, for the first time in the show, the mini-velodrome will feature top speed cyclists competing in a custom course built specially for this weekend.
Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for kids 6-12 years old and seniors, and free for children under 6. And, for a limited time, you can save $2 on each ticket by purchasing online here.
