Bike shows

Hello all,

Can anyone tell me about a few bike shows. Maybe the best or largest for old school viewing. I'd like to take a trip with the kids and bikes this year to check out a bike show. I tried to look up Rockford, but could not find dates for a particular event. What do I look for? Any suggestions would be appreciated. East coast is preferred, but open to a mid-west road trip for sure. Dates or links would be awesome as well.

Cheers,
Stuart

Re: Bike shows

The Society Show in So. Cal is probably the biggest. Hoping to make it this year.

Well, the most prestigious I would say would be the Whittier narrows bike show which used to be called the bellflower bike show hosted my the bmx society. I went last year and never expected something so amazing. You have to make it out. It's in June or July, I forgot.

Re: Bike shows

I saw the forum post for the Midwest show in Feb. It's only 10 hours, but I don't know if I can get a plan together in 4 weeks. Whittier would be a dream, but that is more than a road trip from SC...lol!

Re: Bike shows

TXBONE, that is exactly what I imagine heaven to be like. Thanks for the insight guys. The Spring Fling in Florida, is that the one in St. Pete/Tampa area? That and the Indiana show are definite possibilities.

Re: Bike shows

Itsdug, tudo bem? Como vai voce? Onde no Sao Paulo voce morah? Haha, sorry my Portugues is rusty. Have you ever flown into Rio and noticed the BMX track beside the airport? I feel like I was imagining that, but I swear it was a track with jumps and all. Am I crazy? Boa noite, tchau! big_smile

Re: Bike shows

Your Portuguese is better than mine! Only lived down here for 2 years and mostly speak English. Anyway, I've been to Rio 3 times, but have always driven. I'm sure there is a at least one track in Rio if not more as BMX is pretty big down here. Do you get down here much?

Re: Bike shows

Rockford is dead.

Brian p's summer slam in New Jersey in August is cool.

Never been to Florida

The bmx society show is the first Saturday in June and is a must do. By far, the coolest show around!

Re: Bike shows

Pages 15-21 of this link tell the story of last year's Freedom BMX show that took place in Joliet, IL.  It was LARGE.

http://bmxmuseum.com/forums/viewtopic.p … 56&p=1

Make it up for this year's show in Crown Point, Indiana if you can, NBAyer; it's a good timel.

Is there any in Florida coming up? I'm in Central Florida (Melbourne/ Cape canaveral area)..I have a VAN...some pop rocks and a soda...Let's ride!


In the end, after all the b/s and the this and that and tryin to live and do the right thing, you really truely are all alone.

Man tries to rob Bike Shop (True Story):
Santiago Alvarado, 24, was killed as he fell through the ceiling of a bicycle shop he was burglarizing. Death was caused when the long flashlight he had placed in his mouth to keep his hands free rammed into the base of his skull as he hit the floor.

Re: Bike shows

For anyone taking the trip to Southern California for future shows. You should investigate the Chula Vista Olympic track and hall of fame BMX museum.
