I stopped by the War Memorial Auditorium in Ft. Lauderdale this afternoon to check out the unaptly titled South Florida Bike Expo (Bike America Bike Expo). I arrived shortly after 1pm to check out the BMX demo but don't recall actually seeing the two pro riders who were scheduled to demo. I did catch some other dudes doing some impressive riding and photographed some of them. Inside the expo there was a variety of bicycles, apparel, and accessories on sale for at least 10% off. I also checked out a few tables from various cycling clubs, advocacy groups, and sports nutrition products. It was neat that Bike America invited these groups to set up tables for free. I was surprised by the great turnout and how organized the show was. I was looking to purchase a few small items but unfortunately could not find anything I needed, instead I left the expo with a plethora of local cycling group(s)/advocacy propaganda.
If you get a chance stop by tomorrow Sunday, July 18th. I was told prices may be lowered on some items. Get there early and watch Stage 14th of the Tour de France. They'll also have some spin demos with very good looking women at 2pm.
PS Happy B-Day Justin. Thanks for the beer, keep your eyes open.. I left some stickers throughout your city.
