Custom Bicycle builders and fans are coming to South Beach this year as our East Coast Custom Bike Builders' Round Up takes place at the Miami Beach Convention Center on the golden Florida coast! Join the top bicycle builders as they display their handiwork for interested riders & collectors and watch as our panel of professional cycling judges award top honors in 10 separate categories leading up to the coveted prize for Best in Show!

Join our full roster of cycling craftsmen as we celebrate the Art of Custom Wheeling along the sunny streets of South Florida when you join us for our Annual Custom Bicycle Parade which wends its way through the Art Deco District on Ocean Drive, past the luxury resorts on Collins Avenue, along the pedestrian-friendly Lincoln Road Mall and ending in a Free Wheeling Jamboree and BBQ in the Convention Center Parking Lot! Participate in an afternoon cycling flea market, enjoy bike safety demonstrations and a kid-friendly bike obstacle course with prizes and surprises for all riders.

Exhibitor information and booth rental packets are still being assembled, but stand by for announcements about show dates and ride times coming soon!

Convention Planning Travel Guide

The Miami Beach Convention Center, the proud host of this year's Custom Bicycle Show, is located at 1901 Convention Center Drive on Miami Beach. Boasting over a MILLION square feet of truly flexible exhibit space, this state-of-the-art facility stands at the very heart of all the action that keeps South Beach buzzing in the news. Spanning over 4 city blocks, shaded by majestic palm trees and close to many affordable hotels as well as luxury resorts, the Convention Center makes it easy to combine business and pleasure under one roof!

With over 2000 hotel rooms within walking distance to this year's San Diego Custom Bicycle Show, we're confident you'll find planning your attendance a breeze! Miami International Airport is just 12 miles away and Miami Transit offers the Airport Flyer Bus service which connects the plane and the beach for just $2.35 a rider! Passengers board a 40-foot bus customized with luggage racks and offering free WiFi. Rides run every 30 minutes from 6am-11pm. Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride which includes stops along Collins Avenue, Lincoln Road Mall, and Washington Avenue (terminus is at First Street).

Ride in Our Parade

Custom Bicycle Show's Annual Bike Parade brings together top bike builders and cycling enthusiasts from across the country who join hundreds of local riders on a leisurely, safe community bike ride that serves to promote our show as well as the benefits of cycling for the entire family. Each year, our host city is selected based upon the support of the biking community and relies upon the participation of government employees who volunteer their time and efforts to help keep our dedicated riders safe. Cities with advanced cycling safety programs, dedicated bike lanes and cycling safety initiatives are tops on our list!

If you and your family want to join in the ride, we encourage you to sign up early to be certain you receive your free rider's packet, parade rider's road map and sponsorship information for our Parabike Riders Fund. Custom Bicycle Show team members help support the Veterans Administration ParaBike Initiative which supplies custom-built cycles for wounded vets who ride as part of their rehabilitation efforts. Each bike is fitted to address the particular needs of the rider and is supplied at no cost to our dedicated vets thanks to the fundraising efforts of the riding community.
