Midwest Bicycle Expo & Swap Meet

Mark your calendars for Jan. 31! The St. Louis Regional Bicycle Federation's annual Midwest Bicycle Expo & Swap Meet once again visits the Gateway Center, 1 Gateway Drive in Collinsville, Ill.

The show takes place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission is $8 for adults and free for children 15 and under and for Federation members. $2 coupons are available at participating St. Louis-area bicycle shops.

More than 100 vendors are expected at this year's show, and the entertainment includes a demonstration by the St. Louis Arches youth circus troupe, stationary bike races and a track stand contest. Also planned is a panel discussion featuring local and state bicycle advocates.

Once again, I'll be representing the Gateway Council of Hostelling International at a booth. I'll be handing out fliers for the Tour de Stooges on Saturday, May 1, in Highland, Ill., and other great rides the Council will be putting on in 2010. Also, I'll be selling leftover shirts from the 2009 Tour de Stooges at the greatly discounted price of $5!

The Federation is still seeking business, organization and individual vendors for the event. If you sign up through Jan. 18, a 10x10 space is available for $90. After Jan. 18, the price goes up to $120.

Hope to see you there!
