excellent show. some really intriguing stuff, even if you're not a cycling nerd, from an array of wooden bikes to Massif Central, who will illustrate the data from your recent ride, whether it's a grand tour or a trip down the shops. loads of friendly exhibitors and relaxed atmosphere.
What a great show. As a cyclist, I thoroughly enjoyed going to Spin London, as did my wife, 7 year old son and his friend. There was a good variety of exhibitors at the event and something for everyone, whether you cycle or not.
For those that do, we were catered for by frame builders, bike accessory manufacturers and suppliers and sports nutritionists. For either non-cyclists or cyclists alike, you could have taken your pick of various artists' stands, food and drink stalls, clothing companies, travel specialists, the UV tunnel (the boys particularly enjoyed this) and one company with a great cycling simulator. The variety of bikes on the test track were fantastic and unusual. I think I even saw a hipster on one bike.
As well as all this, there were presentations and Q&As with some amazing individuals including the awe-inspiring Martyn Ashton (worth looking him up) and sports journalist and TV presenter Ned Boulting. We also met two guys who will be rowing across the Atlantic to the Olympic games in Rio (Row2Rio2016) - Chapeau.
I very much hope to go to the next Spin London event if this is the quality of show they put on.
