The popular Bespoked handmade bicycle show has found a new home for 2014, moving from Bristol to London's Lee Valley Velopark, home of the track cycling, BMX and Paralympic track cycling during the London 2012 Olympic games. The dates for your diary are 11-13th April 2014.
The change of venue is due to the "overwhelming success of this year's show" say the organisers. Due to the popularity of the show and the increasing demand from potential exhibitors, a new larger exhibition hall was needed. The show, open for three days, will take place during the first couple of weeks of the velodrome being open to the public.
This year the show attracted an astounding 6,000 visitors, impressive given the show has only been running for three years now. Over 80 exhibitors showcased some of the finest UK bicycles, components and parts from around the world. You can see some of the highlights in our roundup article, and the list of award winners.
