Round-the-world record holder Mark Beaumont starts the Outdoor Show 100 charity ride on Sunday, March 29, beginning in Birmingham and taking in the Warwickshire countryside.

The choice of 100km or 100 mile distances can be entered on the day and riders will gain free entry to the Ordnance Survey Outdoors Show at Birmingham?s NEC, which runs from Friday, March 27 to Sunday, March 29.

With over 250 exhibitors and four zones ? outdoors, adventure sports, water sports and adventure travel ? the show promises to be an action-packed day out.

Climbing walls, a kayak and canoe pool, and a high-level air trail will provide plenty of thrills for adrenalin junkies, while 160 tonnes of earth make up the cycling dirt track where you can test your handling skills on one of the in-house trail bikes.

Scottish cycle stunt team The Clan will be on hand to impress the crowd with their jumps and backflips, and mountain bike experts MB7 host a range of master classes.

Cycling Weekly readers can buy two adult tickets for £22 ? saving £12 ? by quoting the code CY1 when booking at www.outdoorsshowextra.co.uk or by calling 0844 415 4418.
