Its good to see so many grass roots cycle-centred events but which ones are worth setting out your stall for?

Oh no, not another event?

The Winchester Cycle Cavalcade, the Millennium Festival of Cycling, Cyclefest, the MBUK Urban Tour, Encycleopaedia, Spokesfest, the list goes on and on. Cycle events have proliferated this year and taking a trade stand at every one would see you away from home the whole summer long.

However, the Mildenhall Cycle Rally (26-28 August) can now be regarded as a classic. As in previous years the organisers are seeking industry and retailer support. Stands are cheap: £35 per day for a 2m x 2m slot inside the marquee, dropping to £4 a sq metre per day outside.
