Britain’s first Cycle City is to host the nation’s first Handmade and Boutique Bicycle Show, reports Bikebiz.

Bristol will be the destination for independent bike makers as well as small-scale makers of premium products, components, clothing and bike accessories exhibiting their wares.

Bespoked Bristol will take place from Thursday April 28 to Sunday May 1 next year in the historic Passenger Shed of Brunel's old railway station.

The man behind the event, Phil Taylor, told Bikebiz the event was created because there was no opportunity in the UK for the handmade bicycle community to meet up and show their products.

There is no word just yet on who’s exhibiting but a list will be released after the deadline for exhibitor applications expires on October 31.

I'll have to hold off on my new frame purchase until then...then!

for me - The ride is about adventure, camaraderie and the sense of accomplishment that comes after a long day in the saddle.

3 days after my birthday AND just down the road from Stroud - what more could I possibly ask for ?

Cycling - not just a pastime or sport - free your soul on the open road.

Hopefully with it not being in London or the NEC it won't be too expensive for the small, one man, outfits to exhibit. I'm really looking forward to it.

It's not just about the size of your cog.
