How exciting is this! This coming Sunday, 22 October, the inaugural Caloundra Mountain Bike Expo is being held at the Lighthouse Rugby Club in Caloundra. Hosted by CORCA (Caloundra Off Road Cycling Association) and supported by the Sunshine Coast Council, this is a celebration of fifty years of cycling on the Sunshine Coast.
The Caloundra Mountain Bike Expo is a golden opportunity to showcase mountain biking to the local community with beginner mountain bikers able to utilise free bike hire; plus the added bonus of free professional skills' instruction, as well as guided tours around the local trails.
There will be displays, competitions, lucky door prizes, an exhibition of retro and vintage bikes, workshops for bike repair and maintenance; fitness for mountain biking by guest presenters; a buy/sell/swap section, as well as awesome food and coffee.
Confirmed exhibitors for the Caloundra Mountain Bike Expo 2017 are:
A number of additional events and demonstrations will also be taking place during the expo:
CORCA hosted mountain bike rides through local trails (for all levels of mountain biker); Free instruction and bike hire for beginners; Janine Jungfels, the 2015 World Women's Trail Champion will be at the Expo, doing trial displays;

Advanced skills instruction for ladies;
Unicycle demonstrations and rides by Sunshine Unicycles
See below for the day's events' Schedule and generous sponsors of raffle prizes.
If you are an existing mountain biker, bring your bike along and join in for a ride, then have your bike securely valet parked, while you get to enjoy the displays, the demo bikes and the great food at the very first Caloundra Mountain Bike Expo. Sounds like a fun and active way to spend a Sunday with the whole family and...if I'm not e-cycling, I'll see you there!
