The Cycle Show 2013 returns to the NEC, Birmingham opening to the public on 27– 29th September. Showcasing the best the industry has to offer for female cyclists from behemoth outlets to independent stores – it’s all covered this year.

It’s not just show and tell at The Cycle Show this year. Most of the hundreds of bikes on show will be available to test, with visitors able to:
- try out the latest MTBs on the outdoor demo track, with rock garden, berms, roller and jumps designed to give the bikes a proper testing
- roadies can give a top-of-the-range racing bike a whirl on the new premium road bike track, with pro riders on-hand to offer riding tips
- get involved in inclusive cycles for all ages plus children and adults with disabilities including companion cycles, wheelchair tandems, and handcycles
- try out the Dare 2b Commuter demo track, the perfect place to try out the latest road and commuter bikes and get vital advice on your next purchase.
With the bikes dealt with, we thought we’d highlight some brands that will be exhibiting something a little bit different. From glasses to performance jackets, urban commuter clothing and even cycling wallpaper, the Cycle Show has got something for everyone, no matter what level of riding you partake in.
