One of the Biggest Bike Demos in the Northwest!
Thinking about upgrading your ride? Try the latest and greatest bikes from your favorite brands and the Inland Northwest’s best bike shops all in one place. Test ride mountain bikes and e-bikes on miles of Camp Sekani/Beacon Hill cross-country singletrack and downhill trails or take a cruise on a variety of skinny-tire bikes on the paved Centennial Trail. Bike demos run from 9-6 on Saturday (last demo bikes go out at 5 p.m.) and 9-3 on Sunday (last demos out at 2 p.m.).
Spokane-area bike shops Wheel Sport, North Division Bicycles, The Bike Hub, REI, and Shred Sports Outlet will be on hand along with their respective brand partners offering demos of these and other brands:
Niner, Specialized, Giant, Pivot, Santa Cruz, Orbea, Juliana, Liv, Salsa, Ibis, Trek, Yeti, Kona, and REI’s Co-op Cycles.
Wheel Sport Hardtail Bikes:
Want to try a trail bike but don’t need a high-end full suspension bike? Try a hardtail (front suspension only) bike that is perfect for most of the trails around Camp Sekani and the Spokane area from Wheel Sport, one of the Inland Northwest’s largest bike shops. You only need an Adventure Pass to hit the trail with one of these awesome demo bikes
REI Bike Demos:
This is the first time Spokane REI will have Co-op bikes at Spokatopia. You and your family can ride Co-op hybrid bikes and 20-inch and 24-inch bikes on the Centennial Trail. If you prefer Beacon Hill, try out the new full-suspension Co-op DRT mountain bike. REI will showcase the new rental and demo fleets available at Spokane and other REI locations. REI is proud to have a full service shop, rentals in biking, camping, climbing, and paddling, and expert staff who can help fit your bike to you.
Please note, to be able to try out demo bikes from most of the above shops and brands this year, you will need an Expert Bike Pass ($40 online in advance, $50 at the event). REI’s Co-op Cycles bikes and Wheel Sport’s hardtail bikes (front suspension only) require an Adventure Pass ($7 online in advance, $10 at the event). Find more ticket info here.
Play in the Spokane River—Try Paddleboards, Kayaks, and Canoes
