Today, I visited the annual bike show, this year held at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham. This is the first year in Birmingham after years at Earl’s Court, London. Cycle Show 2011 was all the better for the change of venue. Much larger than before, with a more relaxed, open plan atmosphere it was a great day out, and a chance to moon over the latest in bike technology and fashion. I know several readers were interested, so I tweeted stuff as I went around and took some regular photos too, 50 of whichwhich I’ve uploaded to my Flickr account.
If you’re into cycling, thinking about getting into it, or just fancy people in fluorescent jackets and lycra, it’s a fun show. You can test ride bikes, talk to manufacturers and buy kit at decent prices. It’s on all weekend and finishes late Sunday. It’s just over a tenner to get in, but if you like cycling it’s a bargain. For those interested in cycling for people with special needs, there are some fabulous custom machines on show, as well as electric bikes, BMX and road machines, accessories and clothing.
