Its on again, Japan's largest bicycle exhibition Cycle Mode International!
Over 1500 bicycles, frames, clothing and accessories will be on display, from over 500 internationally known brands and smaller local craftsmen showing off their unique, sometimes one of a kind, products. Of the 1500 bicycles on display 800 mountain, road, folding and electric bicycles will be available for test rides on the purpose built 400m oval at the exhibition centre.
Tickets are ¥1,200 at the door and advance tickets can be purchased for ¥1,000 from Ticket Pia, convenience stores or via the Cycle Mode 2012 website.
Myself and Pedal Asia co-host Gavin Dixon will most likely attend Cycle Mode on Friday in a doomed attempt to avoid the crowds. We'll be interviewing for the Pedal Asia Podcast and I'll be sure to pack a camera so I can share pictures with Tokyo By Bike readers.
If you're going to attend the event, drop us a line!
