Ive been, and unless you're a) really into bikes so much that anything bike related is totally awesome or b) also planning on going to the boat show (assuming its on again). Then no. Go riding, thats my advice.

Its ok, but its not worth the trip/cost from Dorset. If I lived in London then sure, but I wouldnt go from elsewhere.

This, if you have nothing else to do then why not. cant buy much, no prices on many things, mainly display only stuff.
the outdoor show (next door) was good, but not worth the visit alone.

Went last year. Won't be going again. Very dissappointing. Very little to buy and not much MTB to look at. Found it very road orientated.
If at first you don't succeed, spend some more money on kit!

I went last year. The show is pretty small but I did have an interesting time on the Training Hub. Going again this year but then it's not a huge journey for me.
