Between September 13 and 15, the NEC will turn into a festival of cycling, with The Cycle Show returning for its 18 outing. With over 500 brands represented, there’s a lot to see and the chance to ride some new models from leading brands.
“We have worked really hard this year to provide an incredibly diverse range of bikes for our attendees to test out,” says Karen Dodd, marketing manager for The Cycle Show. “There will also be a fantastic number of brands offering advice and insight that will be useful for all visitors.”

There’s quite an emphasis on e-bikes, with Bosch being one of the main sponsors of the show and offering both an outdoor MTB track and an indoor ABS test track, where you can try to catch out Bosch’s latest antilock braking system. Plus there’s an outdoor road test track, with a 2km tarmac loop. You can take the 11kg Ribble Endurance SLe e-bike for a spin around the loop and there are a range of pedal-powered options available too.
One of the show’s highlights is the yellow Pinarello Dogma F12 of Egan Bernal and Geraint Thomas’s Dogma F12, both ridden into Paris on the final stage of the Tour de France. There’s also a line-up of well known speakers, including Philip Deignan and Graeme Obree.
