Successful edition of E-bike Challenge

Last weekend, 14,786 cycling and walking enthusiasts visited the combination of the E-bike Challenge and the Fiets en Wandelbeurs at Flanders Expo in Ghent. Both events provided plenty of inspiration for the new cycling and walking season or the purchase of an electric bicycle.

Cycling, walking and e-bikes remain popular in Flanders, as the 2024 edition of both events showed. The aisles were pleasantly busy on both Saturday and Sunday throughout the fair.

E-bike Challenge

Part of Hall 1 was reserved for the E-bike Challenge, the e-bike test event in Belgium with a large indoor test course, including a special track for fast speed pedelecs. Visitors made thousands of test rides on the latest models from 16 brands. They had plenty of choice. The range varied from trendy e-city bikes to e-folding bikes and from e-cargo bikes and e-fat bikes to e-bikes with super batteries and speed pedelecs.

Lectures and workshops

Visitors to the Challenge also had access to the Fiets en Wandelbeurs and the lecture program of that event. No fewer than 81 presentations were on the program over two days. From stories about cycling and walking tours in our own country to routes in Catalonia, treks in Africa and America, bikepacking adventures, pilgrimages and more.

E-bike Challenge is an event by Hicle, which also organizes the Fiets en Wandelbeurs. In Ghent, Belgium, the Challenge already has five successful editions to its name.
