Cycling Weekly were at Cycle Show 2009 at Earls Court in London to bring you plenty of photos of the latest new bikes, components and accessories.
We strolled around the blue carpet taking pictures of as much new kit as we could.
The vast majority of the distributors, manufacturers and retailers we spoke to have had a successful 2009, with several major brands completely selling out of ’09 bikes.
If the trend continues, 2010 looks like it’s going to be a big year for cycling, as numbers of leisure bikers, commuters and those taking part in organised cycling events increases.
Cycle Show 2009 was open to the public from Friday, October 9, to Sunday, October 11, at Earls Court exhibition centre, London.
