The new Velo Cirque, hosted by Velo Cult Bike Shop and Tavern, is the brainchild of owner Sky Boyer. For years Sky has been maintaining a vast collection of interesting bikes – lining the ceiling and walls of his bike shop with them. The former racer has a huge appreciation for unique bikes.
At most bike expos of various sorts, the large booths displaying multiple bikes get all the attention. Unless a booth has a flashy display, it can get lost in the shuffle. Sky aims to change all of that with Velo Cirque by restricting displays to only one bike. That means even the big wigs like Breadwinner or ardent collectors with a garage full of vintage love can still only display one bike. It also means the exhibitors are going to have to be very selective about which singular bike they decide to showcase.
Sky hopes this will level the playing field and make the event more interesting for both exhibitors and viewers alike.
The other aspect of this event that’s turning the traditional format upside down is that Velo Cirque welcomes both vintage and modern bikes. Saturday is reserved for the old bikes and Sunday will be a modern showcase.
Whether your a vintage lover, a modern handbuilt bike aficionado or are intrigued by both, Velo Cirque is the place to be this weekend. It’s only $5 to get in and food and beer will be available.
When: Saturday + Sunday, 3pm – 8pm
Vintage Bike Ride: 10am Saturday followed with coffee and beer.
Where:Velo Cult Bike Shop + Tavern
