ARGUS Bike Festival.
According to ECF “the annual ARGUS Bike Festival is the largest in Europe with over 100.000 visitors. For two days the square in front of Vienna’s city-hall turns into a paradise for every-day and leisure bicyclists.
The festival offers a broad spectrum from many aspects of bicycling: a bicycle fair with over 100 exhibitors, the dirt-contest where 50 world-class dirt-riders take part, test-courses for children and E-bikes, information about every-day and leisure bicycling and a lot more.”
