The Valley Wheelers in conjunction with Neo Cycling Club are proud to launch the 2022 Sydney Classic Bicycle Show. The show has been running since 2013 and has grown to include bicycles, motor scooters, and micro cars.

This year we will host a Track Open, recumbent racing, Penny Farthing races, try-the-track lessons and even races for juniors on regular bikes.

General Admission

Adults are $5 and children under sixteen are free. Please pay at the gate on the day.

Stall Holders

Another way to participate in the show is to run a stall where businesses can showcase their products & services, and the general public can bring old gear to swap or sell.

There are two types of stall holders:

Business Stall

For those with a bricks and mortar or an online business.

Swap meet Stall

For those who have vintage bikes as their hobby or side gig.
