Once again we're building up to The Cycle Show at the NEC, with this year's event taking place between the 28th and 30th September. We'll be there in force to see all the latest gear and catch up with everyone and like every year, I'm sure it will be a great weekend.
If you want to be there too, (and why wouldn't you?) then you can take advantage of this flash sale offer by clicking here and entering the special code CCFLASH which gives you a £1.95 discount on the usual £14.45 daily price for an adult.
The Cycle Show tell us they've got top pro riders Alex Dowsett and Marcel Kittel coming along on both the Saturday and Sunday on their Canyon bikes, as members of the Katusha pro team. Alex and Marcel will be answering questions on the main stage both dates and VIP ticket holders can rub shoulders with them in the VIP lounge for signings and photos.
There's much more to see and do of course, with a hall packed with hundreds of exhibitors, many well known names and some hidden gems as always. Were expecting to see lots of new 2019 bike models. There are test tracks to have a ride for all the family, with a Velovixen Womens Hub in partnership with HSBC and British Cycling with tips on nutrition and cycle gear and test tracks for any kind of bike you want to try out .
Both Cube and IslaBikes have purpose built tracks for your kids to try out their children's ranges.
As in previous years there's also a special MTB bunker and a road test track.
For those of you interested in e-bikes, then there's a special section of the show where all the latest technology and bikes can be seen and there's a Bosch e-MTBbike test track as well as an e-bike test track. New2Cycling Hub in partnership with free2cycle will provide all the help, advice and know-how you need to increase confidence and enjoyment of cycling. Free to use, with regular demos, talks and advice throughout all three days, the New2Cycling Hub will be the perfect place to learn more about e-bikes.
