Chicago will host its first Chicagoland Unconventional Bicycle Expo this October, which will feature such eclectic bikes as recumbents, recumbent tricycles, quadracycles, folding cycles, tandems, velomobiles, transporters, e-bikes, special-needs bikes, cargo bikes, child and load trailers, customized designs and accessories.
The CUBE will be held at the Tinley Park Convention Center, Oct. 2-4.
Organizers say it was inspired by Spezi, an annual German “Special” bicycle show.
“It’s exciting to see this show come together,” said Julie Keating, promoter for CUBE. “I’ve wanted to showcase this for a long time and for it to come to the Chicago Southland is truly wonderful.”
The expo kicks-off with an industry-only showcase from 8 am-noon on Friday, Oct. 2. The public hours of the expo are Friday from noon to 5, then all day Saturday and Sunday.
“It’s great having the inaugural showcase come to the Tinley Park Convention Center,” said Jim Garrett, president and CEO for the Chicago Southland CVB. “I encourage all bicycle enthusiasts to check out the expo and take advantage of the countless miles of trails that weave throughout the Chicago Southland including the newly finished Cal-Sag Trail.”
The expo will include educational seminars, and access to some of nation’s top unconventional bicycle dealers, along with test rides on the latest models.
