This year’s Show will again be bringing a vast array of features, special guests and the latest gear from leading cycling brands to appeal to road, mountain bike, urban and family cyclists.
New for 2017 is ‘The Craft’, a special section of the show dedicated to the artisans from the bike world.
This section celebrates hand built frames, customs clothing, hand built wheels, craft beer and beautiful art. Expect to find unique hand braised commuters, gravel bikes, fixies and monster cross bikes. Along with plenty of beards.
The Rider Lounge will once again play host to 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, downhill MTB legend Steve Peat and the hugely inspiring Martin Ashton.
Returning in 2017 is the Air to the Throne competition, an international MTB freestyle competition, featuring a selection of the world’s best freestyle mountain bikers.
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. Alongside the main test track will be 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.
