Heartland Velo Show Brings Handmade Bicycles to Midwest in August

heartland velo show handmade bicycle expo in madison wisconsin 2011

If the sprinkling of other new shows and the fact that NAHBS is on track for their largest event ever is any indication, there’s a growing interest among both consumers and the cottage industry to show the artisan side of the bicycle business. The latest show to get official with a date and location is the Heartland Velo Show, being promoted by none other than Bina Belinky. Here’s the blurb:

For over 100 years, the Midwest has been at the forefront of bicycle manufacturing, racing, and recreational riding. On August 27  & 28, the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wisconsin will house a weekend-long celebration of everything bicycle. Artisans and manufacturers of bicycles, components, cycling accessories and apparel will display their wares. Exciting demonstrations, informative panels and seminars as well as parties and entertainment will create a “something for everyone” atmosphere to delight cyclists and non- cyclists alike. The Heartland Velo Show is designed to inspire aficionados, enthusiasts, casual riders and those who may just be curious about the fun, fitness and freedom to be found on two wheels.
