The Cycle Show
The Cycle Show is the UK’s largest and longest-running cycling exhibition. Launched in 2002 by Upper Street Events Ltd at the Business Design Centre in Islington, the show rapidly outgrew its venue before moving to ExCeL and then to Earls Court in 2008. In 2011 the show relocated to Birmingham’s NEC where it achieved record attendance figures. Cycling legends that have appeared at the show have included Sir Bradley Wiggins, Vincenzo Nibali, Mario Cipollini, Lizzie Deignan, Eddy Merckx, The Athertons, Manon Carpenter, Bob Haro and Sir Chris Hoy, plus cycling fans such as Lord Sugar, Davina McCall and ex-England rugby captain Martin Johnson.
In 2019, Upper Street Events was acquired by Immediate Media, the owners of BikeRadar, Cycling Plus, MBUK and 220 Triathlon, creating a combined reach of 3.85m cyclists across the company’s channels.
In 2022, The Cycle Show will take the next exciting step on its journey, returning to London, this time at Alexandra Palace where it will co-locate with the launch of The London eBike Festival. The iconic venue will be packed with the very best cycling brands, while the parkland will host demo tracks utilising the famous steep climbs, giving visitors the chance to fully test ride the latest bikes while enjoying one of the
finest views of London’s skyline.
