When & where is it?
This year the Cycling Media Awards are at the Islington Metalworks, very close to Angel tube station. Fittingly, the Metalworks has historical transport links – stabling horses that pulled trams for London Transport in the late 19th Century. In 1925 it was converted into a still functioning metalworks. There’s a map on the venue’s site here.

What can I expect on the night?
An awards ceremony (of course), food, drink and networking with the cycle media glitterati. Take a look at our gallery from last year’s Cycling Media Awards for an idea of what to expect on the night.

How can I come along to the CMAs? Journalists will be invited free of charge – we’ll be contacting them in the coming weeks and offering a limited number of free tickets per title. The event is also open to everyone else, but we do charge for those tickets.
