Ausbike is on again in Melbourne. Billed as Australia's premier bike expo Ausbike brings the unique opportunity of an enormous shed filled to the rafters with bike 'stuff'. The sports lovers will certainly be well catered for, there's a great BMX comp, a vintage bike display and a small area where the kidlets can bike around as well as some of your favourites like Ron D Swan and Treadly Bike Shop.
We'll be there at stand 64 and we'll have two of the bikes from Made to Measure - the Treadlie Handmade Bicycle Show there with us, both featuring the amazing leather skills of Busyman Bicycles.
Best of all Ausbike have taken advantage of Roll Up's fabulous bicycle valet parking services so you will be able to leave your trusty bike in the safe hands of bike-loving experts. Melbourne Showgrounds is reasonably handy to a couple of bike paths so check your favourite route app for the best way to get there.
Alternatively, join in with the guys from Bike Fun who will be hosting a ride to Ausbike leaving Federation Square at 11.00am on Sunday the 21st.
Held at the Melbourne Show Grounds from August 20-22nd, the weekend days are open to the general public while Monday is a trade day. Tickets can be purchased online or on the day.
