We’ve got an exciting line-up for this year’s Seattle Bicycle Expo, to be held March 9 and 10 at the Smith Cove Cruise Terminal. From thrilling stunt shows to DIY-crafts to inspiring presenters, Expo has it all. The terminal’s 135,000-square foot, two-floor space will buzz with local bike shops and nationally recognized manufacturers showing off their latest wares; and a special lineup of speakers and presentations will take to three separate stages. Leading up to the Seattle Bike Expo, we will feature some of Expo’s highlights here on the blog.
Traffic Stoppers Fashion Show
Presented by Hub and Bespoke
1:15 to 1:55 p.m.
REI Main Stage (top floor)
Join us for the splendid return of Seattle Bicycle Expo’s Traffic Stoppers fashion show! Who knew bicycling could look this good? With bike wear suitable for the saddle as well as the workday or an evening out, we hope our looks will inspire would-be riders to hop on a bike and take to the city streets. And it wouldn’t be Expo without a nod to our urban athletes as well.
This year, the show will again feature modeling talent from the ranks of the Cascade Bicycle Club staff, as well as representatives from a number of local organizations that address alternative transportation in our region. We’re also excited that Seattle’s inspiring and dynamic world-traveling cyclist Willie Weir will return as master of ceremonies.
Why fashion and bikes?
As part of integrating cycling into our lifestyles, fashion and apparel play an important and practical role.
“A cute dress doubles as safety gear,” says Juliette Delfs, owner of Seattle cycling boutique Hub and Bespoke. “There’s nothing like a dress or attractive coat to get all eyes on you.”
So, think of this fashion show as inspiration for personalized, creative, fun and safe city riding. Lights and helmets are musts, but a handsome outfit is also de rigueur.
