Olympia, 14-16 January 2005
Imagine the scene – Christmas and New Year behind you, Spring still a long way off and nothing but wind, rain and short, dark, days in which to get your biking fix. Yep, January’s a miserable month in pretty much all respects – unless, that is you come and visit us at the Daily Telegraph Adventure Travel and Sports Show at London Olympia between 14 and 16 January.
We’ve got a stand in the Virtual Adventure Center at the show, complete with a Tacx I-magic, and to celebrate the fact, readers of the mag are able to get a discount on tickets if they book in advance.
The show looks as if it’s going to be a cracker; it’s now in its tenth year and new dedicated features include travel photography, Africa, and family and luxury adventures. A number of adventure travel and sports specialists, tourism agencies and charity expedition organisations including Across The Divide, Global Adventure Challenges, Destination Quebec, Bike Greece, Saddle Skedaddle, Mountain Beach, KE Adventure Travel, Seek Your Journey, and Crystal Active will whet your appetite with holiday ideas. There’s something for everyone, from the spectacular traverses of Latin America offering volcano descents and jungle river crossings and an adventure around the ice cap in southern Iceland, to gentle cycling rides in the Loire Valley and India. From mountain biking weekends in Britain, to multi activity adventures for all the family, there’s something for everyone.
There’s also a whole load of talks in the Adventure Lecture Series and Wanderlust Travel Advice Theatre including highlights such as ‘Tibet Overland – Lhasa To Kathmandu By Bike’, where Kym McConnell will describe how to prepare for such a journey, taking you alongside 8000m peaks and conquering 5000m mountain passes including the world’s longest downhill.
