The UK’s largest gathering of classic pre-1995 mountain bikes, ‘icon•o•classic’, is taking place at the historic market place in Warwick on September 14th 2014.
icon•o•classic will provide a showcase for these bikes – both to the general public, and for all the exhibitors and other like-minded enthusiasts. We’re sure that like us you will relish the opportunity to show your bikes, and to be able to see so many others all at the same time and in the same location.
All up to date details, including registration information can be found at www.iconoclassic.org as well as in the dedicated section on Retrobike – both of which will be regularly updated.
The aim for icon•o•classic is to showcase at least 200 pre-1995 mountain bikes, in one location, at the same time. Simultaneously 100 different Team jerseys and strips will be displayed around the town centre, to further add to the atmosphere and augment the setting of the bikes.
We would like a broad range of classic mountain bikes on show. One aim for icon•o•classic is to get bikes that members of the public can relate to – possibly bikes the same as they might have owned themselves back in the day. The only requirements are that the bikes are from 1995 or earlier, and that they are presentable for what will in effect be a ‘show n’ shine’ event.
Further to this, there will be a unanimous ‘Best in Show’ competition with the exhibitors and general public encouraged to vote on the day for their favourite bike.
The show will be managed through a pre-registration process – if you would like to come along please register your interest here. (more…)
