Another way to ride a bicycle
Attending this event is as easy as riding a bike. The second annual Chicagoland Unconventional Bicycle Expo (CUBE) rides its way into the Tinley Park Convention Center, September 30th - October 2nd. This is the nation's largest show for unconventional bikes.
Friday, September 30th from 10AM- 5PM
Saturday, October 1st from 9AM - 5PM
Sunday, October 2nd 10AM - 4PM
Tinley Park Convention Center
18451 Convention Center Drive, Tinley Park
Inspired by Spezi, an annual German “Special” bicycle show, the Chicagoland Unconventional Bicycle Expo will showcase recumbents, recumbent tricycles, quadracycles, folding cycles, tandems, velomobiles, transporters, electrical bikes, special needs bikes, cargo bikes, child and load trailers, customized designs and accessories.
A recumbent bicycle and tricycle places the rider in a reclined, laid back position.
"A recumbent tricycle is a great solution for someone who has trouble with their balance," said Joe Reichert of Amling's Cycle, which will be one of the largest exhibitors at CUBE.
Julie Keating from Amlings Cycle has said that she started riding recumbent bicycles because the traditional bicycle would cause pain in her wrists. She said a lot of customers who will benefit from attending CUBE might have a variety of physical issues ranging from neck and knee problems to Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis and ataxia.
The expo will include educational seminars throughout the weekend covering topics on the benefits and tools needed to help those with disabilities be able to experience the freedom of mobility to full body engagement cycling. You'll have access to the nation's top unconventional bicycle and accessories dealers and test rides on the latest models. While visiting, take advantage of the countless miles of trails that weave throughout the Chicago Southland including the Cal-Sag Trail.
