FAQ

About the Event

Which Hall are you in?

The show is in Hall 12

What are the Show opening times?

The show will be open 9am – 5pm on Saturday 15th June and 9am - 4pm on Sunday 16th June 2024.

Will there be food stalls?

Yes, there will be a number of NEC-managed food stalls, and some of our exhibitors will sell packaged food items.

Will I need ID?

We don’t require ID to gain entry to the Show.

Is there a cloakroom?

The NEC has a cloakroom before you enter the Show. Visitors with a VIP Ticket will have access to a VIP Cloakroom in the VIP Lounge.

Do I need to book to see a speaker?

No, our theatres are built into the exhibition hall and therefore free and accessible for all show visitors. The theatres do have limited seating, which will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis.

How are you working to reduce the carbon footprint at the show?

From working with the venue, looking at ourselves and collaborating with exhibitors. But here's the thing... Visitors' travel is the biggest carbon emitter of each show. So we need your help. Taking the train instead of driving will reduce the emissions of your journey by around 80%. The NEC is a 5 minute walk from Birmingham International train station or 90 seconds by the free air-rail walk. If you need to drive, car share with friends and reduce your impact by 50%. There's a great network of cycle and footpaths in the area and bike racks are near the entrance. There are also electric car charging point and more to come in the future...

Our mission is to build a sustainable model that uses Preloved Sportswear to provide inspiration, opportunities and support to others.
To use fitness as a driver for positive change to enable people to fulfil their potential whilst protecting our communities.

We understand that cycling, running and fitness in general has become extremely popular and we know how important fitness is to improve a person’s mental health. Unfortunately, with this increased popularity, comes an increase in unnecessary waste but we can all play our part in helping reduce unnecessary waste, protecting our local environment and preserving what we can for future generations.

You can help us achieve our mission by:

  1. Donating your Preloved Sports clothing, footwear and accessories to us. We love giving your Preloved Sports items a new home, either by reselling them on our online shop so others can benefit from them, or redistributing the items to charities and organisations who help those in need.
  2. Looking for a bargain? Our range of Preloved items is ever changing, some of which have never been worn. You can get a great deal and our profits are used to support those in need.
  3. By donating and buying with Preloved Sports, you are helping reduce the amount of waste entering landfill, protecting your local environment.


You can donate your Preloved Sports clothes, footwear and accessories at our stand E73 at The National Cycling Show.
Please ensure all items are clean and any footwear are paired. 
Follow us on our socials to see where everything goes.

IMMERSIVE CYCLING

Sponsored by

Bikeability

Immersive cycle training using virtual reality technology: a partnership between the Bikeability Trust and Brunel University, London

The Bikeability Trust is working in partnership with Dr Dan Bishop of Brunel University London, to generate evidence that immersive cycle training using virtual reality technology can complement and augment existing Bikeability training for children. It makes them more observant, more aware, and more confident cyclists. The immersive training also enhances children’s attitudes towards cycling on roads. 

During the training, the children experience real-world scenarios viewed from a cyclist’s perspective, as they cycle on a static bicycle. They hear pre-recorded instructions that prompt them to look around and become more aware of their surroundings. Dr Bishop and his colleagues have also ‘gamified’ the experience, such that the children collect points, manifested in a series of reward sounds, if they look in the right places at the right times. Unsurprisingly, this gamified approach has proven popular with adolescents, a notoriously difficult group to engage with vis-à-vis cycling as a mode of active travel.

At The National Cycling Show 2023, Dr Dan is bringing immersive cycle training to the activity floor, giving guests the chance to try out the virtual reality training themselves.

SHOWCASE ALLEY

Our Showcase Alley is the perfect place to explore the latest innovations in cycling technology to retro colourways. You can check out the newest carbon fibre frames, high-performance wheels, and cutting-edge suspension systems. A mini bike gallery with supporting information to really get your wheels spinning. The brands with bikes display in the Showcase Alley are at the event exhibiting so make sure that you check them out on their stands too if you want to find out more info.

Here's a list of brands who's bikes will feature in the Showcase Alley:

Welcome to the National Cycling Show 2023

WELCOME

Addie Brake

Commercial Director
at Raccoon Media Group

Welcome to the National Cycling Show! It has taken a solid 11 months to bring this together with a lot of work to ensure that this is a great day out for people who love bikes, are new to the sport or getting back into it after a break.

We have curated this show so that there is something for everyone regardless of age, ability, background or gender. We have created something for the Roadies to MTB riders and eBike fans to purists. We strive to be as inclusive as possible showing that there is a bike for EVERYONE!

What’s on offer?

Two stages with amazing speakers and content – The Road and Track Stage sponsored by Sports Tours International and The MTB, Gravel and BMX stage sponsored by Nevis Range will play host to speakers including Ed Clancy, Bethany Shriever, Kriss Kyle, Sir Chris Hoy. Head over to the Agenda button on the Show Guide to see who is speaking, when and where.

What can I do other than shop?

Tonnes!

  • After hearing from our speakers you can check out Showcase Alley sponsored by Science in Sport where you can see latest technology and retro bikes which will have everyone drooling.
  • Back by popular demand we have Fusion Extreme at the Show to keep the crowds entertained with demos, displays and workshops.
  • Our inclusive hub delivered by Wheels for All and its collaborators demonstrates that cycling can be truly inclusive.
  • Visit the Her Spirit Zone for women starting or developing their journey in cycling.
  • Are you adventurous and love the outdoors? Then visit the Bikepacking and Adventure Biking zone, enjoy drop in clinics and info from top brands and if you have the kids with you then try out the Strider Balance Bike feature or the Huffy Family Zone (FYI adults are also able to try their amazing range of bikes here too!)
  • Have you ever wondered what you would do if you were out on a ride and something goes wrong? Visit the CPR feature to learn what to do when things don’t go to plan.
  • Finally, visit Bikeability Trust and Dr Dan Bishop of Brunel University London to take part in the the virtual reality cycling experience.
  • Are you a bit of a last-minute Larry and don’t have your Father’s Day present yet? This is a perfect place to spend time with your Cycling mad Dad or to grab the perfect gift.

Thank you for spending your time with us and we truly hope you enjoy the second edition of the National Cycling Show!

If you’d like to share any feedback about the event (good or constructive) then please do contact me at any time – your feedback is important and helps us build a better event for the future, so look out for the visitor survey post event too.

Thank you again for coming.

Aged 36 and ready for a change in her life, Naomi set off to cycle the world on the adventure of a lifetime. This life changing trip, undertaken with a man she’s met just three times, would see her ride thousands of kilometres through tiger reserves, over the world’s highest mountain pass, through deserts and a 5-lane motorway. With early school reports noting Naomi would be better at sport if she at least turned up this is not an athlete’s story but one of an ordinary person with a great opportunity and a can-do attitude. Her book, ‘The World at 15mph..ish’ offers an inspiring memoir of travel, cycling, relationships and the oft missed transition on returning home.

Joanna Rowsell Shand MBE is a cyclist on the Great Britain team and two times Olympic Champion from London 2012 and Rio 2016.

Joanna began competitive cycling relatively late – aged 16 – having been talent spotted at school aged 15. Joanna wasn’t a cyclist at all previously and having been talent spotted was faced with a steep learning curve into the world of cycling skills and tactics. Perseverance lead to junior National Titles and representing Great Britain at the junior World Championships in only her second year of racing.

Joanna grew up in London but after finishing her A Levels relocated to Manchester to be a full time cyclist and within 9 months won her first World Title in the women’s Team Pursuit. A series of setbacks throughout 2010 put Joanna’s place on Team GB in jeopardy as she subsequently suffered a bad year in 2011, but she battled back to become World Champion, World Record holder and Olympic Champion in 2012.

After the London Olympics Joanna focussed more on individual events and in 2014 completed the World Championships and Commonwealth Games double with gold medals at both events in the Individual Pursuit that year.

Joanna again made Team GB in 2016 for the Rio Olympics but this time the team went in as the underdogs having not won the World Title that year. However the team blew the competition away to take a gold medal again and 3 new World Records in the process.
