Bring your bike, your family, and your riding buddies, and embrace the awesomeness of wheels. For those who don’t sign up for courses there are still plenty of things to see and do at the event for free. Anyone who has an interest in cycling shouldn’t miss the opportunity to visit MEC Bikefest.

 

Marketplace

We’re happy to announce this year we will have the MEC Marketplace. What is the MEC Marketplace? It’s your chance to buy some of the great things you need to bike!

 

Event Description

Our courses are for all abilities, from introductory to advanced, and are taught by some of North America’s greatest cycle instructors. Clinics and courses are $10 each plus tax, and include all the gear you need to get your hands dirty with your bike.

This is a family event and kids are welcome. MEC Bikefest has something for every cyclist, including opportunities to test out a wide array of bikes.

If it rains we get wet.

 

Gearswap

Have old bike you want to get rid of? Come to Gear Swap’s new relative – Bikeswap. Bike Swap will be held beside the MEC Marketplace. Your used gear will benefit from the high traffic MEC Marketplace will generate. More information will be available closer to the event.

 

Participation

There will be workshops specifically designed for kids. However, if your child is attending a workshop, you need to attend the same workshop with them. There is no childcare, so you’ll need to supervise your kids.

Everyone can come learn with us. Even if you don’t swim, or have never been in a boat, come and join us – just make sure to select beginner-level workshops.

Volunteer

Do you want a whole day in the sun and get volunteer hours to boot! Sign up here to volunteer for MEC Burlington Bikefest. We need volunteers to help with registration, running activities for the Kids Corner and to pack up the event. More details to come!
