Manchester hosts cycling’s coolest consumer show
Sports Tours International is the official travel partner at a major urban cycling event that is coming to the city this weekend.
Thousands of Manchester’s cycling community will congregate for SPIN – The Cycling Festival which will take place in Manchester from 6-8 May 2016 at the Victoria Warehouse, off Chester Road in Old Trafford.
Showcasing more than one hundred of the most forward-thinking cycling brands, the show celebrates cycling, fashion, design, innovation and culture.
Sports Tours International will be showcasing their brands – Club La Santa, Wheel2Wheel Holidays and Freewheel Holidays across the weekend. Olympic gold medallist and brand ambassador Joanna Rowsell-Shand will also be joining Sports Tours International on their stand on Sunday 8th May.
SPIN brings together every aspect of the cycling world, from test tracks and frame building to art installations and bike film premieres, giving visitors the chance to explore and experience cycling in one dedicated space. With DJs, live music and a café zone with street food, coffee and craft beer pop-ups, the event has an energy and atmosphere that aims to break the mould for a cycling show, creating a fun, entertaining and educational experience for all the family.
In the café zone, Cup North will be bringing a taster of their annual coffee festival with roasters, baristas, home brewers, bakers and more.
Alex Daw, Show Director for event organisers, Mercury Events, said:
“The SPIN cycling Festival offers a refreshing alternative to the traditional trade and consumer show. Manchester is amongst the world leading cities for cycling, so it was an obvious choice when we wanted to bring our established show out of London. Manchester is a very cool city and SPIN juxtaposes the most progressive international traders with art installations, cyclic experiences, music and food, sharpening the focus on the urban cycling scene, road cycling and what’s new to 2016. SPIN has created an unrivalled mix of cycling culture, featuring the leading industry heavyweights, as well as lesser known independent brands and innovative start-ups.”
