Bike Lovers Contest

Who has the most beautiful bike in the whole country?

The beauty contest for bicycles is a trip to the more distant islands of Planet Velo. A good ten masters* of bicycle construction from all over Europe present their handmade, rideable works of art at the FESTIVAL in Europaallee. The audience is also the jury and votes on whose bike will receive the beauty plaque. Stop by and cast your vote for your favorite bike.

Custom frame building: Daily - not everyday

We are, it seems, at a turning point in various areas; a turn of the times is at hand. A central theme here: mobility in cities.

The theme of the Bike Lovers Contest 2023 is called EVERYDAY - NOT EVERYDAY. Expected are concept bikes, one-offs, prototype bikes that show what everyday cycling will look like in the future: What is a future-proof urban bicycle? A pedal-powered vehicle for the city of tomorrow? Will e-bikes continue to flood the city, or will the classic urban bike find its way back to the masses? Is even the gravel bike pushing into the city like the fox, or is the all-weather, fully-wired velomobile finally making its breakthrough?
