Vienna: Bike Festival takes to the streets

Posted in: Vienna


Bike Festival. The event is sponsored by Argus, a non-profit, non-partisan association of like-minded bike-crazed individuals aiming to promote the use of bicycles to ease traffic in the city and protect the environment.

For anyone searching for cheaper bikes (or wanting to sell an old bike) the Bike Festival is there to help. This year’s theme is mobility. A flea market for two-wheeled transport will be joined by a few tents selling bike accessories and parts at bargain prices. The latest maps for bikes will also distributed for free. A Nostalgia Corner will exhibit historical bikes, and seminars will tackle issues, including bicycle mobility in the city and children’s safety.

One of the festival’s highlights is Vienna Air King, the International Dirt Jump Contest. Participants will show off back flip or Superman tricks. Hardcore.
