Sir Chris Hoy set to headline at newly launched National Cycling Show
Calling all cyclists! The newly launched National Cycling Show is set to welcome thousands of budding and experience cyclists through its doors at the NEC in Birmingham on 18-19 June 2022. Bringing a premier retail experience, a first-class speaker line-up, a plethora of impressive interactive features, plus the ability to try-and-buy a huge variety of bikes including road, mountain, commuter, family and gravel at the show, the event is set to be a one-stop-shop for every cyclists needs, no matter how far or fast they go.
The two-day event is aimed at established, lapsed and new cyclists and will play host to some of the Cycling scene’s biggest names including Sir Chris Hoy, Jenny Tough, Mimi Anderson and Marlon Moncrieffe, who will lead a packed schedule of motivational talks on the Inspiration Stage. With a strong focus on supporting new cyclists and upskilling existing enthusiasts, the Show will also provide a Cycling 101 Stage which will offer workshops and sessions such as Safety on the Roads, Maintaining your bike, Cycling as a commuter option and Getting started in Cycling from experts and professionals from across the industry.
6-time Olympic gold medallist and National Cycling Show speaker, Sir Chris Hoy, commented: “I am delighted to be speaking at The National Cycling Show. Being able to share my experiences, the highs, the lows and everything in between and inspire others to get on their bike and experience all that cycling has to offer, is an honour. Exercise, health and mental wellbeing have never been higher on the agenda and for me, and many others, cycling offers an escape, a release and that well-known Cyclist’s high that not only promotes health but also improves confidence and all-round mental and physical well-being. I look forward to meeting both new and experienced cyclists at the show in June and hope that my story might inspire experienced riders to dream big and absolute beginners to jump on their bike and get started.”
The event will play host to the top brands, charities and events in Cycling including a host that have already signed up to attend including 2Pure, Coros, Moustache, Ibis, Body Glide, Chamois Buttr, Feedback, Goodr, Grangers, Lizard Skins, Nuun, Sprindex, Unior, Manbi/ Salice, Cycling UK, Water to go, Leaping Fish, Beet it Sport, WWF and Woodland Trust.
The event will also boast an on-site Testing Area to allow visitors to try out bikes on a variety of different terrains, a Spinning Zone, E-bike Stage and Meet & Greet Area so visitors can meet their Cycling idols after hearing them speak.
Helen Cook from Cycling UK commented, “This show is set to open up the incredibly diverse world of cycling to people who have participated for decades as well as those who have perhaps taken up the sport over the last year of national lockdowns. We are delighted to be Partnering with The National Cycling Show to provide opportunities to welcome new participants to the sport, build a community of people from every background and cycling discipline, to support, encourage and motivate cyclists to get fit, upskill and fully immerse themselves in the world of cycling over two days in June and far beyond.”
