Cycle Show 2006 is only 10 weeks away - with just nine booths left, a record attendance expected and retail sales set to be introduced for the first time.

Cycle Show nears – exclusive retailer considered

New exhibitors at this year’s show include Pashley, Trigon, Muddy Fox, Cube, Pinnacle, Viper, Amba Marketing, Casa Masaferrer and Zed Cycles.

Show organisers have also been investigating options for the inclusion of a retail area this year. The preferred option is for a single booth, with a self-contained changing room and stock area.

One exclusive retailer would be appointed, selling clothing, bags and sunglasses only, and a strict no-discount policy would be enforced. The Cycle team are keen to hear from retailers wishing to apply.

Definitely new for 2006 is an off-road mountain bike test track where trade and consumer visitors can put the latest MTBs through their paces.

If you have bikes that you want to include in the test fleet, then the Cycle team would like to hear from you.
