Тhe Cycling & Health Tech Industry R&D Center, with the supervision and support by the Ministry of Economic Affairs of R.O.C., is hosting the 24th International Bicycle Design Competition (IBDC).
Founded in 1996, IBDC aims to establish a platform for creative concepts and designed work, introduce the original design ideas from the global main consumer markets, and attract designers around the world to contribute their creativity to the future of cycling. With different cultures and interests introduced from various countries, IBDC hopes that the level of cycling design can be sharpened and then become more internationally alike. Based on this vision, Taiwan can be the hub of creative and innovative cycling design, and keep creating new trends in the cycling industry.
This year, the theme of competition is “Intelligence, Sustainability, and Living from Heart”. With these three values, IBDC hopes that more bicycles can be created with intelligent technology, sustainable ideas, and sensible design to provide people another option or style of transportation and living.
Intelligence: By using smart technology to assist Ebike design, cycling is hoped to be the core when designing. To take a step further, more creative and innovative services or products can be developed.
Sustainability: In the initiatives announced by the United Nations (UN), cycling is believed to be the best symbol of sustainability and eco-friendliness.
Living from Heart: Designing and riding bicycles with the inner joy and innovative riding mode, the spirit of Living from Heart can provide people a new, exciting feeling of products from workout and enjoyment.
