â€œThere is huge passion for all disciplines of cycling in Vancouver and we are pleased to create an event to bring the cycling industry together to kick off the 2011 cycling seasonâ€, stated Fred Cox, Producer of the Vancouver Bike Show. â€œWith many of the worldâ€™s leading cycling manufacturers based in British Columbia, coupled with the communityâ€™s interest in bicycle commuting options and green transportation alternatives, we felt it was time to create a first class cycling showcase in Vancouverâ€.
