Hicle events in top gear

After three years of absence due to corona, the events of Hicle in Europe experienced a very successful edition in 2023. The combination of Fiets en Wandelbeurs Netherland with E-bike Xperience attracted no fewer than 26,594 visitors. In Belgium there was also a lot of interest in the Fiets en Wandelbeurs and E-bike Challenge. The organization welcomed 15,266 visitors. In short, Hicle Events is back on stage after the corona years.

E-bike Challenge Minneapolis 2023 cancelled

The edition of E-bike Challenge in Minneapolis (USA), which was scheduled for March 11 and 12, 2023, has been cancelled. The market is currently in a difficult phase with severe labor shortages, high inflation and energy prices, and ongoing supply and logistics problems for many companies that planned to exhibit. In these uncertain economic conditions, we noticed that it is difficult for exhibitors to commit early, which has affected the planning for the E-bike Challenge. E-bike Challenge is now looking at the possibilities for a new edition in 2024.

Awards for EuroVelo 5 and Stellingenpad

The EuroVelo 5 in Belgium and the Stellingenpad in the Netherlands are the Cycling Route and Walking Route of the Year 2023 respectively. The cycling jury was particularly charmed by the enormous variety that the EuroVelo 5 offers; you will find plenty of nature, industrial heritage and cycle through the center of Brussels, Namur and along Dinant. The hiking jury praised the solid and practical signposting at the Stellingenpad via nodes, the exceptionally beautiful and detailed guide, the original theme and the detailed historical background. She also saw the fact that the path runs through two national parks – the Drents-Friese Wolden National Park and the Weerribben–Wieden National Park – as an important plus.

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!
