On stage

We can’t wait to see Lizzie Deignan (above) take to the stage as just one of many well-known faces from cycling past and present. The former road and track world champion and current Paris-Roubaix champion will be at the show on Sunday 24th April.

Also on stage during the long weekend will be Jo Rowsell and Adam Blythe, who’ll be talking to ToB race director Mick Bennett about their favourites for this year’s Women’s Tour and the Tour of Britain route; plus if you’re there on the Friday or Saturday, you may be lucky enough to see two of the finest Classics riders of all time: Vitus brand ambassador Sean Kelly and Tom Boonen, one of Belgium’s greatest-ever riders. Oh, and keep an eye out for David Millar, Cycling Plus columnist Ned Boulting and more big names too!

Shop till you drop

Fancy doing some shopping while you’re there? You’ll struggle to come out empty-handed, thanks to the vast array of stunning bikes, tech, gear and gadgets from brands including Specialized, SRAM, Continental, Cannondale, Canyon, BMC, Vitus, Ridgeback, 3T, Tern, Haibike, Schwalbe, Riese & Muller, Bosch, Swift Carbon, Ribble plus all the UK’s top distributors showcasing cycling’s best brands. Look out for the exciting new product launches too.

Testing, testing

And who wouldn’t want to take their pick of the latest bikes for a spin outside at the Demo Village? Speed around the 1.5km road/commuter-bike circuit, or try out the exciting gravel/mountain biking track.

eBikes galore

There’ll also be a whole show within a show for eBikes this year. Take a test ride on a Haibike, Raleigh or Tern perhaps, get buying advice from the team at Rutland Cycles or head to the stage area to learn more about this fast-growing area of biking.
