The Bike And Triathlon Show Comes To Manchester
First ever Bike & Triathlon Show is coming to Manchester on 16-17 February 2013.
February sees the first ever Bike & Triathlon Show come to Manchester Central. Taking place over the weekend of February 16-17, the show promises to be the one show that any cyclist or triathlete will find too good to miss with top brands and names from the worlds of bike and tri all under one substantial and prestigious roof.
Taking place in the bike and triathlon mad North West of England, the show is very much the first of its kind for the area and this shows in the quality and number of exhibitors attending the event. With tickets also selling like the proverbial hot cakes, the Bike & Triathlon Show is set to be a very busy one and establish itself on the event calendar for many years to come.
The list of confirmed exhibitors is growing daily but already includes Trek, Cervelo, Ibis, BH Bikes, Velocite, Forme, USN, Clif Bar, High Five, Royles, Skechers, Zoggs and many more top brands from bike manufacturers and nutrition suppliers to event organisers and clothing companies. The most recent exhibitor list can be found at www.bikeandtri.co.uk
Show attractions include a wide range of stars from the worlds of bike and tri as well as a number of interactive and fun zones for the whole family to enjoy.
Zoggs will be running a Swim Zone featuring an endless pool for you to try as well as to receive feedback on your swim stroke with a number of experts on hand to help and advise.
Koolstof Coaching will be hosting an in-depth VIP Coaching Zone where you can get every aspect of your cycling and fitness analysed before receiving feedback and a formal training plan tailored to your exact needs. Full details can be found at http://bikeandtri.co.uk/vip-coaching-zone/
The central stage, supported by British Cycling, will feature a number of cycling celebs, shows and seminars whilst Phoenix Riders Co will also be on hand to amaze with their unmissable trick riding show.
Vulpine will be hosting their well loved Vulpine fete showcasing some of the latest and greatest of the many small and independent bike and clothing companies in the UK today as well as your chance to win some truly amazing prizes in the Rollapaluza challenge including a truly limited edition Foffa bike for the fastest time of the weekend.
There will also be a Kids Zone and Shoretrax MTB track to keep both the young and old equally amused and entertained. All Terrain Cycles will be on hand at the Shoretrax area with a demo fleet of the latest Giant and Trek mountain bikes for you to try first hand. After all, what bike show would be complete without the chance to actually ride?
On that note and to kick things off in style on the Sunday morning (Feb 17th), the organisers have also now announced that there will be a sportive starting and finishing at Manchester Central. Registration to the sportive will also include a ticket to the main show with secure bike storage laid on at the venue for visitors and sportive riders alike.
The sportive offers a choice of two timed courses – a 46 mile route and a 75 miler – and each course will feature stunning scenery and feed stations run by USN with all finishers receiving an event T-shirt. The price for both routes is £30 and this includes entry to the show after the ride. So get your bikes ready and register today for what is set to be a great kick off to the sportive season in the unique central Manchester setting.
General admission tickets are priced at £12 with U16s entering the show free of charge.
