Eurobike showcases the best of the bike industry, yet between the meetings, the seminars, the browsing and the carousing, there are few opportunities to get out of the Messe and ride your bike.
Following the popularity of last year’s Rapha rides, we’re hosting an expanded series of rides to take advantage of the fantastic riding in the countryside surrounding the Messe. We’ve partnered with Pinarello to offer bikes for those unable to bring their own to Eurobike, and arranged post-ride meals for all riders.
Capacity is limited, click through on the links below to reserve your space on the rides.
Wed 27th, Thurs 28th, Fri 29th — Langenargen and Meersburg
Getting to the Messe can be difficult, especially when half the bike industry is trying to get into one confined space at once. So, to ease the strain on the local autobahns, we are hosting a series of rides from Langenargen and Meersburg to the Messe. Meeting at 7am, we’ll be taking a stress-free, one-hour ride along some of our favourite local roads to the Messe, finishing with breakfast.
To make logistics as simple as possible, we’ll be running a bag drop, taking your day’s essentials to the Messe, ready for your arrival from the ride. With arrival planned for 8am, there will be plenty of time to enjoy breakfast, change, and get ready for the day. There are showers available for all Eurobike attendees in the Messe.
Wed 27th, Thurs 28th — Messe
The countryside around Friedrichshafen offers some fantastic riding, which our evening rides will take full advantage of before heading back to the Messe for a barbeque. The rides will last around two hours at a social pace, and will have the use of a follow car with a mechanic. On Wednesday evening, we’ll also be hosting a women’s ride.
If you’re unable to bring a bike to Eurobike, we’re pleased to offer a bike from Pinarello, although you will need to bring your own shoes and pedals. We have a limited number of bikes, available on a first-reserved, first-served basis.
