The Cycle Show is the UK’s number 1 cycling exhibition, held each year at the NEC in Birmingham. Featuring products from over 250 exhibitors and attracting an audience in excess of 25,000 people, the show is a must-visit event on the calendar of cycling enthusiasts.
The annual event will be hosted at the Birmingham NEC again this year, making it easily accessible to over 35 million people in the UK. Opening its doors from 25-27 September, The Cycle Show returns with 170 brands already having confirmed their presence.
The ever-popular annual event attracts some of the best brands in cycling across mountain biking, cyclocross and road cycling. Among the brands to make their show debut this year are Canyon, Planet X, Zéfal and Compressport along with show regulars including Trek, Bianchi, Condor, Raleigh and Boardman. This is as well as distributors such as Moore Large, Silverfish, Madison and ATB Sales who will be represented with a larger presence this year, and the return of Foffa Bikes and Hotlines UK.
Following its success last year and increasing profile within the cycling community, Cyclocross racing will be held on Saturday 26th September, and this time around includes elite men and elite women’s races as well as men’s, women’s and junior amateur races. The events, organised by Just Ride, will start and finish inside the show, with outdoor sections taking place in the woodlands of the NEC grounds and indoor sections utilising the dirt-jumping summit.
Attendees will also be able to enjoy the return of the UK’s biggest dirt-jumping contest with Sam Pilgrim inviting the sport’s best riders to the NEC, adding a competitive element to the Show.
