Powered Transportation Association
HPTA Display at the Toronto Bike Show 2006
Our best show ever. I thought Bob and Tina did a great job with the
display and we had good volunteer support as well . The booth was very
busy most of the weekend with lots of friends old and new stopping by.
Jack from Oracle brought the new Omega SWB to display. Bryan Ball from
Bentrider had a lowracer on hand. Carey Chen from Urbane cyclist
provided some sweet deals on some high end components for members at
the show. KMX was very happy with our support of their trike and has
agreed to give the club one more adult sport trike for displays. Murray
Cleland and new builder Mike Swift brought in some trikes to show the
crowds. We had something new every day.
Ice bike feedback . Lots of folks saw the Discovery footage, and feel
we should move towards having a demonstration Ice bike event for the
2010 Winter olympics. We are now looking into the potential for a
standardized race that can be adapted for International competition. (
5 K Relay races, 1 K sprint, 500M Pursuit etc ).
