From weekend warriors to daily commuters, policy advocates and hardcore enthusiasts, Torklift Central wants our biker community to be happy. To celebrate the Emerald City bike scene, we’ll be attending the 2014 Seattle Bicycle Expo March 1st-2nd at the Smith Cove Cruise Terminal 91. With more than 175 vendors, three stages of how-to presentations, panels, and expert demos, there really will be something for everyone to enjoy. Not convinced? Take a look at this:
The show will feature not one, but two forms of live bicycle acrobatics. Yes – that’s a thing now.
Not to be outdone, Torklift Central is going to have a few tricks of our own at Booth 323.
For starters, we’ll be showcasing a 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek outfitted with a hidden EcoHitch and Thule bike rack. How hidden is the EcoHitch? We’re going to have the rear of the Subie propped up in the air just to prove that it really does exist.
To illustrate our enlightened fashion sense we’ll also be revealing a new EcoHitch clothing line for the chic Eco-Conscious individual. Last but not least, there will be free swag, prizes, a raffle and special show discount to be announced soon.
Besides its abundance of vendors, the Seattle Bike Expo deserves its reputation as a force for proliferating bike culture. Guests will have access to an impressive range of educational services to learn from and interact with industry experts. Topics include how to build your own bike, find the best places to ride in Washington and abroad, avoid bike injuries, go on an effective bicycle diet, ride like a professional cyclist and much more.
For the vertically challenged crowd, the show will also feature a Kid’s Zone. Here, kids can learn to ride, take a spin on the Wheelie Fun Stunt Course, make jewelry and art out of used bike parts, and go on a treasure hunt that challenges their intellect.
Guests of all ages should pay a visit to the hub of the show at the Cascade booth on the second floor. Visitors can load up on even more swag, learn about youth programs, free group rides, events and advocacy work.
Perhaps most emblematic of the show ethos, anyone who donates a used bike to Bike Works onsite will get in for free. Bike Works will refurbish the old bike and get it into the hands of a deserving person in the community through their youth and adult programs.
