by singletrackjon 5

After a successful first year, the London Bike Show will be returning to ExCeL in Docklands, London, from the 12-15th January. The organisers are promising that it’ll be bigger and better than ever before, with twice the number of exhibitors plus loads of demonstrations and the chance to try out the latest bikes. Here’s their press release in full:

“The launch of The London Bike Show in January 2011 was a huge hit with London’s cyclists, and is returning in 2012 with twice the number of exhibitors. Whether you’re looking to buy your first bike, treat yourself to some new gear or want to check out the latest bike designs, The London Bike Show has it all.

Trials supremo Martyn Ashton will be in action...

The show offers a fantastic opportunity to meet some of cycling’s top stars and a range of experts, be entertained by awesome demonstrations and to try out the latest bikes.

The Animal Relentless Bike Tour is Europe’s number one mountain bike freestyle team. They hit The London Bike Show by storm in 2011 mixing demos of incredible skill, control and balance with spectacular aerial style tricks and will return to the show in 2012. The tour features a brand new circuit and features some of the World’s most exciting riders, including former World Champion trials rider Martyn Ashton and fellow British stars Sam Pilgrim and Blake Samson.

The London Bike Show have teamed up with the London Hardcourt Bike Polo association to host London’s first ever indoor international bike polo tournament. Over 20 teams will be competing throughout the course of the show to be crowned London Bike Show Champions. Visitors will be able to try out bike polo for themselves, with guidance from experts on the bike polo taster pitch.

Another very popular attraction from the 2011 London Bike Show, The Cycling Stage, will return to the show in 2012, featuring some of the World’s top cyclists, cycling teams and cycle adventurers. Visit www.thelondonbikeshow.co.uk for the latest speaker line up.

For the finest examples of the latest bikes and innovations within cycling visitors should head to The Cool Wall, a display handpicked by experts from the world of cycling.

  1. “with twice the number of exhibitors”

    Ten?

  2. Being in January I might go along but not if its over £10 entry. I was distinctly under whelmed last time I went in about 2008 to Earls Court. Some bike shops have more kit on display, and its for sale.

  3. I went to this last year. Eurobike it ain’t. But, if you go on the Thursday it stays open ’til 9pm, you can get cheap entry if you turn up after 4 or 5 (I did last year anyway, cost me about a fiver). That also gets you in to the boat show that’s on at the same time. So you could just look at a few bikes and then go quaff champagne on the deck of a mega-yacht. There’s worse ways to spend an evening…

  4. Yeh, last year was frankly rubbish. Will they even have a shop this time?

  5. Last year was year one, u kinda got to give the guys a break, they did an ace job considering. The show for us was a great success – the fact it was one ticket that got you into the Outdoors show, the bike show and also the boat show meant it was the ONLY time my family have ever come to anything involving my work! and had a great time.

    Genuinely – this year there is more than twice the number of exhibitors, despite the fact they are competitors in life, this is something I (Madison) am really excited about – Trek, Extra, all sorts are coming this year and unusually for us, we will be running the shop at the show – including a cool sample sale from our apparel brands – some bargains to be had etc etc. Come – give it a try; year 1 – poss even y2 – don’t think solely bike show – think great day out – its the lot IMHO
