On your bike – premier cycling show comes to London


The London Bike Show – Driven by SEAT, is the celebration of all things cycling whether you are king of the mountain or a two-wheeled commuter. Aspiring Wiggins wannabes and Froome fanatics are encouraged to attend.

Taking place at the ExCel from Thursday 12th February to Sunday 15th, the UK’s premier cycling event is set to host a number of incredible bike-related attractions, as well as showcasing all the latest bicycles, gear and essential cycling contraptions going.

There will be incredible stunt displays, talks from cycling’s legends at the Cycling Performance Theatre (sponsored by British Eurosport), the chance to try out your dream bike and personal assessment from performance experts.

And that’s not all! If you book your tickets early you will be in with a chance to win the CANYON Endurace CF 9.0 road bike which is worth an impressive. Rated nine out of ten by Road.CC, this bike is a serious piece of kit.

From road, and mountain, to urban or family, there will be something here to keep you interested.

Cycling in the UK has undergone something of a renaissance in recent years with both the 2012 Olympics and the 2014 Tour De France inspiring people to get on their bikes more often and this event promises to be a great day out for anyone who has an interest in the sport.

To get to the ExCel venue, you can take a combination of underground and DLR services. Starting from Bank, which you can reach on the Northern, Central and Waterloo & City lines, you need to take the DLR to Prince Regent station. From here, the event is a short walk away.

Dedicated riders who are cycling to the capital may wish to rest their weary legs at one of our Shaftesbury Hotels after the event.
