Fans of the open road in Calgary are in for a treat this weekend as a motorcycle show rolls into town.
Thousands are expected to check out the Motorcycle Show at the BMO Centre in Stampede Park on Saturday and Sunday. The show features a range of activities for the whole family, including riding lessons for children, vintage displays and stunt riders.
"It's a sport that anybody can do with the right training," said Diane Wild, who's been riding for more than 30 years and was at the show. "It's a really, really relaxing way to enjoy out-of-work hours, out-of-family hours. It's just a different expression of individuality."
The show also includes a ladies night for female motorcycle fans, which took place Friday night.
The show is also an opportunity for fans to get a first look at the showcase of new 2014 models from some of the industry's leading manufacturers, such as BMW, Suzuki and Yamaha.
