It’s not often that you can check out the latest cycling kit and then walk a few metres and shake the hand of a pro racing star or two, but this year’s Cycle show in London has given thousands of cyclists that very opportunity.

This year’s show has attracted some very well known names from the world of cycling – Olympic gold medallists Nicole Cooke and Paul Manning; Paralympic multi-gold medallist Darren Kenny; BMX world champion Shanaze Reade; Race Across America soloist Jim Rees; and many more have been mixing freely with the crowds at Earls Court. It’s hard to imagine many other sports being this accessible.

With so many stars and so much new kit, it’s been hard to know where to look first. Here we present another selection of images from this year’s Cycle show in London.

You can take a look at part one here or look back over Ben Wilson’s selecton of show reports from Thursday.
