This is the time of year where you start hearing about various bike shows such as Eurobike and Interbike. I’ve been to Interbike for the past several years, haven’t been to Eurobike, but there’s another show that I’ve been wanting to go to and that one is called The Cycle Show, it’s considered to be the UK’s #1 cycle show.
So what makes it so special? For one it’s in the UK and that’s one of the places I’ve always wanted to visit. Second, they’ll have brands at this show that we don’t really hear of in the US. Such as CUBE, Rock Machine, KTM Bicycles and many more.
I was checking out the website to see what kind of cool things this show will offer for it’s attendees. Let me list them:
1. Track that allows you to test out high end road bikes.
2. MTB demo track.
3. Cycling hub to demonstrate both children’s and adult products for testing.
4. City track, for commuter bikes.
5. Electric Bike Village for all the new products that are electrified.
7. LIVE FRAME BUILDING. How cool is that!
So when is this fun show going to happen? 25th through the 28th of September. If you decide to attend, I suggest you book your rooms now. One local hotel that I found who still has rooms available is Crowne Plaza Burmingham., they’re literally minutes by car or an easy bike ride from the show venue.
In my previous years of attending Interbike, it helps to have your accommodations near the venue. Sometimes you just get tired of walking all day and need to rest. In other situations, you want to call it a night after a long day of meetings and nothing beats relaxing at the hotel spas while sipping your favorite beverage.
