History

A key part of the RBC GranFondo experience since 2011, VeloSpoke has offered RBC GranFondo Whistler participants and the public an opportunity to experience the latest in cycling gear and technology, sport nutrition and wellness, activity-based travel and more.  

At VeloSpoke, exhibitors connect with thousands of cyclists, active lifestyle enthusiasts and industry colleagues

VeloSpoke Bike Expo welcomes ride participants and the public to the Vancouver Convention Centre in advance of the RBC GranFondo Whistler, the largest Gran Fondo in North America. We invite you to take part in the energy and excitement of the entire event by becoming an exhibitor at VeloSpoke 2022!

Over the past decade, VeloSpoke has connected distributors, retailers and service providers with thousands of visitors and cycling enthusiasts; in 2019, we welcomed over 10,000 visitors, including more than 5,000 dedicated road cyclists gearing up for the following day’s spectacular ride to Whistler. 14,000 riders and spectators are expected to attend this year.

We appreciate there are fewer bicycle exhibitions for industry professionals to attend and connect. In addition to fostering a strong and passionate cycling community, our objective is to continue developing VeloSpoke as a relaxed yet professional expo for retailers, distributors and the public, where industry colleagues connect, share, inspire and promote. And yes, selling gear, bikes and accessories is very much encouraged!
