Coming in the prime season for the launch of new bike ranges for the year ahead, the UK Cycle Show from October 14-16, 2005, is a unique preview of the bikes that will be in the shops next year. As well as getting close to hundreds of new bikes and accessories, the show provides an opportunity to meet plenty of experts willing to share their cycling knowledge, chat to campaign groups, or book a cycling holiday.
Visitors also have the chance of winning a week's training with Sean Kelly in Majorca from Sport Active sports holidays. The prize will include a loan bike from Merlin (sponsors of the Sean Kelly Development Team, based out of Belgium), paid flights and a place on the camp for one week. The camp takes place from March 3 until April 7, 2006, and is based around Alcudia in Majorca with cycle routes both flat and challenging.
