About the Festival
Fall CycloFest is the ultimate cycling festival for both bicycle retailers and consumers seeking to learn, ride and experience the latest innovations in the bicycle industry. This four-day event takes place at the U.S. National Whitewater Center in Charlotte, NC, and is split to include 1.5 private access days for bicycle retailers, and 2.5 public days for consumers. Many of the top brands in the bicycle industry will be on hand with their latest products, plus retailer education, group rides, cyclocross and MTB races, live music and craft beer.
Private Industry Only Day – October 19, 2017:
The first day of Fall CycloFest is dedicated to retailer education, technical clinics and product demonstrations from many of the top brands in the world of cycling. This event is ideal for front-line staff, general managers, mechanics and owners to meet with product managers and brand marketing teams to discuss selling strategies, get immersed in products details and more. This will also be an ideal place to network with other retailers, enjoy some great local beer & food and listen to some amazing regional live music. Registration is required.
The event is within driving distance from Atlanta, GA to Knoxville, TN to Richmond, VA and more – and being that Charlotte is a hub for several major airlines, direct flights from numerous cities east of the Mississippi River make the trip quick, and affordable.
