Bike Expo 2009

Despite the rainy weather, area cyclists showed up in droves for Cascade’s annual Bike Expo. After a year in SoDo, the expo returned to Magnuson Park this year. Bigger and better than ever, exhibitors have taken over all of Hanger 30 and an adjacent tent, will several others in the surrounding area.

The events began last night with an appearance by Bob Roll. Hysterical beyond words, the audience left sore from laughter and with a better understanding of cycling from the perspective of Bobke himself. With tales of vicious climbs, unfathomable riding weather and complete debauchery, Bobke gave us his own recap of the Tour of California and predictions for what may be the most dramatic Tour de France that July has ever seen.

Events continue tomorrow at Hanger 30 where you’re likely to find some day-two deals between the great line-up of presenters.

If you’re not able to attend, Cascade will be tweeting and the Flickr stream is likely to have more additions.
