    Hey Guys

    Does anyone know if there is a Cycling show held in Australia, a bit like the motor shows we have?
    I have seen & heard of them overseas in the USA & Europe but have not heard of any here in Aus.

    Any ideas?

    Bicycling Australia used to run an annual one that alternated between Melbourne and Sydney but I think that's gone now.

    A quick Google brought up this one:

    There was a big two day show in Melbourne a month or two ago.

    It was a trade show though - no punters.

    There may be a public show soon though, or so I hear.

    As previously mentioned there was one that alternated between Melbourne & Sydney.
    In Sydney it used to be at Rosehill, then Olympic Park when the Spring Cycle changed its finish location to the same place. Saturday was trade only day & Sunday for the public.
    Was quite a good show but died in the ars3 a few years ago, no doubt due to the cost of running it. Can't see it ever coming back...
