This April’s last weekend VELOBerlin will once again open its hangar gates. Situated in former Tempelhof Airport, the show doesn’t just mark the beginning of a new cycling season – it also gives bloggers like you a whole bunch of opportunities. We have planned an interesting and manifold programme for you: from breakfast to critical mass, from guided road rides to VIP party, from test rides to exclusive news presentations, there’s certainly something for everyone. You’ll even get to stay in a hotel for free. Please see at the end of this mail.

Our schedule already starts before the show officially does. We’ll focus on cycling politics and the struggle for more bike traffic with an “Urban Infrastructur Ride” through Germany’s capitol – and you’re invited! We’ll meet at 5 p.m. at the show venue. Our guide is Heinrich Strößenreuther, who became widely known by successfully initiating the Berlin Cycling Referendum (Volksentscheid Fahrrad). Our guided tour will merge into the CriticalMass Berlin.

Fortified by our TWC breakfast, which will be arranged for you from 10 a.m., you can start into the show itself. As a kick off our TWC show tour will give you an overview on 250 exhibitors and their product highlights. Following that you can also join the official press tour or take a bike for a spin on the test course. At 4 p.m. we’ll gladly welcome you to our Insta Ride along the most important Berlin sights. Get a taste of this buzzing city, take and share some pictures before joining us at 6.30 p.m. at the VIP party for a chat with exhibitors and industry insiders.

There’s nothing like an early morning city spin, right? At 8 a.m. we’ll head for a TWC roadbike tour, directly at the fairground. Back just in time for TWC breakfast at 10 a.m. you can either spend another day at the show or start your trip home relaxed.
