Does someone know any details regarding the events for this presentation of a Red Line BMX bicycle?

Details from photo: 1980 International Festival of Cycling, RED LINE BMX Bicycle being presented by Miss Festival of Cycling & Stephen Constable.

* What is the International Festival of Cycling?
* Where did this take place in 1980?
* Why was a Red Line BMX being presented?

My guess would be that Red Line (BMX manufacturer) was a sponsor of a contest related to the event. The picture looks like it was in a bike shop so maybe they also sold Red Line bikes. Roger

Not sure about the exact event but it looks like it occurred at the Gecko Leisure booth, Gecko was the parent company of both Redline and Kuwahara BMX.

kwoodyh, I did not know that Gecko was the parent company of both Redline. I believe you have a good point, this photo probably was taken in the Gecko booth at the International Festival of Cycling event. Now all I wonder is where that event took place in 1980?

rhenning, You are probably correct, that the Red Line BMX bike was a prize at the International Festival of Cycling event.
