Ausbike 2011 covers all kinds of cycling including: Road, Track, Time Trial, Mountain Bikes, Cross Country, BMX, Trials, Kids, Toddlers, even Unicycles! Not only will bikes be showing but also an unimaginable array of accessories to go with your bike and your lifestyle. This show is an absolute must-not-miss event for anyone interested in bikes or who works in the bicycle industry.

Ausbike 2011 Melbourne Bike Expo has an exhibition space of over 10,000sqm and an expected 10,000 bicycle enthusiasts and 2500 trade experts will attend the show. Visitors will be able to:

  • See brands from around the world and speak to those who know them best
  • View a fantastic collection of vintage bikes proudly put on display by many of the premier collectors of Melbourne
