The St. Louis Regional Bicycle Federation will host the Midwest Bicycle Expo and Swap Meet on Sunday, Jan. 25, at the Gateway Center, 1 Gateway Drive in Collinsville, Ill. This is the third straight year the meet has taken place at the Gateway Center.

The show will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission is $8 for adults and free for children 15 and under. Coupons offers a $2 discount are available at some St. Louis-area bike shops.

Individuals, bike shops, non-profits, and bike-related businesses will have booths with all sorts of bike-related goods. Display your vintage bike, or vote for the best of the classicStingrays, balloon tire, middleweight, and special interest models.

New this year is a silent auction featuring items and gift certificates from some of our finest local businesses. Don’t miss your chance to bid and win. Proceeds go to creating a better bicycling environment in our region!

I hope to see you there! I will be at the Gateway Council of Hostelling International's booth pushing the Tour de Stooges and selling raffle tickets for the second of two Bachetta recumbent bicycle being raffled off to raise money for Gerry "Chief" Frierdich, the Belleville, Ill., bicyclist who was critically injured when he was struck by a pickup truck on Aug. 19. 2007.

I'll have a bit more to say about Gerry in a post later this week.
