Every year in May, in the pittoresche settings of Riva del Garda (Trento), The Bike Festival hosts the most important International Cycling Brands at one of the best run open public events of the Italian Cycling Calendar – RIVA BIKE FESTIVAL powered by FSA. The Event is obviously orientated much around Adventure Cycling (Downhill,Gravity,Xc, E-Bike & Gravel) and Cycle Tourism due to the location, Lake Garda which has an embarrassing quantity of Adventure Cycling Routes.
We went yesterday to meet many friends and scoured around the stands reporting for you. Big thanks to SRAM for the really useful rain coat and MAGURA for the top popcorn! My personal favourites were the YT Industries and the POLE Frame Geometries! Which are your favourites? It was an impressive turnout (lots of foreign visitors: Germans, Austrians, Brits, Dutch) even with the terrible weather that arrived at 16.00. Here are the forecasted amount of visitors for these 3 days of Adventure Cycling fun!
More than 45,000 visitors
and more than 4000 visitors only at the Open Night
So if you have time folks! well worth popping up to RIVA today and tomorrow. Take your Brollies and Rain Costs. HAVE FUN!
