Event makes first sortie outside London as it moves to the Bike & Triathlon Show

Cycle clothing brand Vulpine have held two editions of their very successful Vulpine Cycling Fete now at the Balham Bowls Club in South London, but they’ve been very keen for a while to take it outside the capital, and next weekend that will become reality as it hits the new Bike & Triathlon Show in Manchester.

Held at Manchester Central on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 February, with opening hours from 10am to 5pm, tickets to the show itself costs £12 for adults – under-16s go free – with full details, including how to book, here.

Exhibitors in the Vulpine Cycling Fete area include Velo Vixen, Made In England, Velo Love and The Discerning Cyclist.

To get an idea of what’s on offer in the Vulpine Cycling Fete area, take a look at these pictures from the event in Balham before Christmas.


Born in Scotland, Simon moved to London aged seven and now lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with his miniature schnauzer, Elodie. He fell in love with cycling one Saturday morning in 1994 while living in Italy when Milan-San Remo went past his front door. A daily cycle commuter in London back before riding to work started to boom, he's been news editor at road.cc since 2009. Handily for work, he speaks French and Italian. He doesn't get to ride his Colnago as often as he'd like, and freely admits he's much more adept at cooking than fettling with bikes.
