Still not sure? We’ve picked out five reasons you should head to Manchester’s EventCity for BikeExpo 2017 on Saturday March 18 and Sunday March 19.


Big brands and stunning bikes

First and foremost, why else would you head to a bike show if not to lust over the latest wares from some of the biggest brands in the business?

BikeSwanky’s 2017 range includes bikes from Orro, Eddy Merckx, Orbea, Felt and De Rosa

Rose Bikes, Schwalbe and Torq are among the brands set for this year’s BikeExpo, while BikeSwanky – who collaborate with independent bike businesses across the country – will also have their latest 2017 range on display.

Among the brands Bike Swanky stock are Orro, responsible for the stunning ‘Signature’ White Gold Chorus pictured here, Eddy Merckx, Orbea, Felt and De Rosa.

Expert speakers

BikeExpo have rounded up experts and pro riders from across the two-wheeled spectrum, with MTB legend Steve Peat among the biggest names on show.

Great Britain’s rising track sprint star Ryan Owens, ultra-cyclist Shu Pullinger, aero ace Dan Bigham and long-distance adventure rider Dean Stott will also be on hand so there’s plenty to appeal to anyone.

More guests are to be confirmed in the coming weeks, including a team launch – keep an eye on the Bike Expo website for more details.

Street Velodrome

The popular pop-up track cycling competition, Street Velodrome, also returns to the North West for BikeExpo.

UK Flatland BMX Championships

We love all things two-wheeled at RCUK, and if you do too then the UK Flatland BMX Championships are also being held at BikeExpo.
