In full swing

Cycling, hiking, outdoor! We know how to handle it. With events, holiday offers, blogs and advice. We are happy to share our passion with our visitors and professionals in the field of cycling and hiking. And we gladly promote active holidays at home and abroad.

Dates events 2022 announced

The dates of the Hicle events in 2022 are now known. The Fiets en Wandelbeurs and E-bike Challenge are scheduled for 19 and 20 February in Flanders Expo in Ghent (Belgium). A week later, on 25 and 26 February, the Fiets en Wandelbeurs and E-bike Xperience will take place in Jaarbeurs Utrecht (Netherlands). The E-bike Challenge in Minneapolis will complete the event series on April 2 & 3 at the convention center of this city in Minnesota, USA.

Online Experience attracts 4,500 visitors

The first online edition of the Fiets en Wandelbeurs was visited by approximately 4,500 enthusiasts on 23 and 24 April 2021. After purchasing a ticket, they could log in to the event platform of the "Fiets en Wandelbeurs Online Experience", which presented a wide range of destinations, lectures and workshops. The stands and the recorded lectures are available to ticket buyers until 9 May. It is also still possible to buy tickets until then.

Events in May 2021 cancelled

Due to the corona crisis, we have been forced to cancel the Fiets en Wandelbeurzen (Hike & Bike Xperiences) in Ghent (May 1-2) and Utrecht (May 7-8), the E-bike Challenge in Ghent (May 1-2) and the E-bike Xperience in Utrecht (May 7-8). As an alternative to this we offered the Fiets en Wandelbeurs Online Experience, which took place on 23 and 24 April.

We carry on!

One thing is clear: we will continue to work to realize great events. Because cycling, hiking and e-bikes are now more popular than ever. Of course, those events cannot take place without your support and trust. No fairs without exhibitors; we need your participation to set up another great event!

We would like to welcome you to the exhibition floor in 2022. Questions? Mail us at:
