The Hunt Cycling is a full service bike-shop, independent journal and collective consisting of three cycling enthusiasts based in Halle Saale. We try to explore, document and share our experiences in the field of cycling and beyond. Besides drinking shandy, lots of riding and intellectual discusses about bike parts and stuff, we enjoy riding with friends and running our showroom and bike-shop located in the center of Halle.
We knew early this year that we wanted to visit the Fahrradschau in Berlin again. Not only because we were looking forward to an interesting day in Berlin with lots of bikes and bicycle related consumer products, but we also wanted to visit and support some friends playing at the annual Bike Polo Tournament at the Fahrradschau. This was our fourth visit in total and our second visit only as visitors. For us it was particularly interesting how the Fahrradschau evolved over the past few years. We really liked to see more custom bike builders showing their skills like Meerglas, Fern-Fahrräder, Wheeldan and Krömer just to name a few. Their booths were constantly crowded with interested visitors. We were also surprised to see even more electric bicycles for urban use. The food was great and it is always nice to have a drink while strolling through the large halls surrounded by so many bikes, interesting brands and people to chat whit. As if that wasn’t enough our local Bike Polo Crew managed to earn an excellent second place. Congratulations!
