Bike Expo Launches Demo Day

MUNICH, Germany – For the first time Bike Expo will feature a Demo Day for dealers and members of the press. The event will be held one day prior to the opening of the Munich trade show, on July 20th, 2011, at the Samerberg Bike Park. The picturesque alpine valley near the Samerberg encompasses more than 200 km of marked bike trails and invites participants to put the innovations for the upcoming season through their paces.

The Bike Expo Test Area and start area for all demo trails will be located in the bike park itself. Participants will be guided to the trails designated for each segment. E-bike testers will ride on a 3.5 km trail leading through a few selected hamlets. Road racers have a 12.5 km, well-maintained asphalt trail at their disposal, which also contains an extensive incline with an average 10% grade and altitude difference of about 200 meters. Mountainbikers will be guided to a trail with a number of different terrain variations pleasing freeriders as well as dirt bikers. Testers who prefer not to cycle all the way up to the bike park will enjoy complimentary use of the Hochriesbahn gondola located close to the Bike Expo Test Area providing convenient access the bike park terrain.

A complimentary shuttle service from the East Entrance at the New Munich Trade Fair Center, offers easy and convenient travel to and from the demo event. The Bike Expo show will be held from July 21st to 24th, 2011 at the New Munich Trade Fair.
