Midwest Bicycle Expo and Swap Meet

Filed under: bicycling,Illinois,Missouri — Tags: , — Roger @ 1:40 pm

Looking for a bicycle, bicycle parts or opportunities to get involved in bicycling?

Trailnet is presenting the annual Midwest Bicycle Expo and Swap Meet on Sunday, Jan. 29. The event will be from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Gateway Convention Center at 1 Gateway Drive in Collinsville, Ill. (The Gateway Center is northwest of the intersection of Interstate 55-70 and Illinois Route 157.)

The expo features a classic bike show and a bike corral where people can buy and sell bicycles. The event also features booths from bike shops and organizations.

Once again, the St. Louis Cycling Club/Belleville Area Bicycling and Eating Society will have a booth at the show. You’ll be able to join us for sign up for the 15th annual Tour de Stooges at our booth.

I’ll be there later in the day, and I look forward to seeing my friends in the bicycle community!

BICYCLE DREAMS: If you’re looking for something to do Thursday night, Big Shark and Trailnet is presenting “Bicycle Dreams,” Stephen Auerbach’s documentary film about the 2005 Race Across America.

The screening will be at 7:00 p.m. at The Moolah Theatre, 3821 Lindell Blvd in St. Louis. If you act quickly, you can still get tickets online for $11; otherwise, it’s $15 at the door. Proceeds from the event will benefit Trailnet.

I reviewed “Bicycle Dreams” two years ago. It focuses on the drama of RAAM, an ultramarathon races across the country and Dr. Bob Breedlove, who died when he was struck head-on by a pickup truck near Trinidad, Colo., during the race.
