The London Bike Show will return to ExCeL London this February, running from Thursday 11th – Sunday 14th.
This year’s Show will be bringing special guests and the latest gear from leading cycling brands to appeal to road, mountain bike, urban and family cyclists.
Over 300 confirmed brands will be in attendance, including Cannondale, Boardman, GT Bikes, Scott, Hoy Bikes, Enigma, Specialized and many more of the cycling’s biggest brand names, as well as several large cycling retailers.
The Cycling Performance Theatre will play host to a stellar list of special guest speakers from across the world of cycling. Previous guests include Great Britain’s most successful Olympian, Sir Chris HOY, 3-time Tour de France winner Greg LeMond and downhill MTB legend Steve Peat.
Added to the line up will be a brand new international MTB freestyle competition, Air to the Throne. Featuring 30 of the world’s best freestyle mountain bikers, including home favourites Sam Pilgrim, Daryl Brown and Matt Jones, the gigantic AT3 course will push the riders to their limit as they battle it out for a chance to win the €10,000 pot.
For MTB fans looking for a place to relax, the Hot Seat bar will be situated overlooking the course, serving a variety of drinks and screening MTB films throughout the duration of the Show.
For cyclists looking to fine tune their performance, the Surrey Human Performance Training Hub returns to the Show offering visitors the chance to book an intensive 1- 2-1 session with one of the Institute’s experts. During these exclusive sessions, participants will undergo a full fitness and technique analysis, before receiving a personalised professional training plan.
There will be a wide range of bikes from the world’s leading brands available for visitors to test on the Test Track, with road, commuter and electric models being on hand. This is as well as a dedicated kid’s test track, where younger ones can try out the latest bikes on the market.

After an unpromising start, having to be bribed by her parents to learn to ride without stabilisers, Sarah became rather keener on cycling in her university years, and was eventually persuaded to upgrade to proper road cycling by the prospect of a shiny red Italian bike, which she promptly destroyed by trapping a pair of knickers in the rear derailleur. Sarah writes about about cycling every weekend on road.cc.
