February sees the first ever Bike & Triathlon Show come to Manchester Central. Taking place over the weekend of February 16-17, the show has 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 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 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.
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.
General admission tickets are priced at £12 with U16s entering the show free of charge. More information on the Bike & Triathlon Show can be found at www.bikeandtri.co.uk or via the Twitter feed @bikeandtri.
