Scottish Bike Show set for huge expansion in 2012

Exhibitor numbers doubled compared to this time last year

Riders from BMX team BSD Forever will be back to wow the crowds at the Scottish Bike Show 2012

Twice as many exhibitors have been confirmed for the second Scottish Bike Show compared to this time last year.


It will be again staged at Glasgow’s SECC, from Friday 13 to Sunday 15 April, and has so far attracted over 20 companies, including Upgrade Bikes (distributor of Pivot Cycles and Kinesis) retailers Alpine Bikes and Pedal Power, and Continental.

With the success of last year’s inaugural event, show organisers have moved to add an extra day to proceedings and increase hall space by 1,200 square metres. All three days are open to the public, who’ll be able to buy new bikes and accessories throughout the exhibition hall.

Exhibitors apart, the indoor test track and forest trail will return, with the latter now twice the size and offering a choice of easy, medium and tricky routes to demo the latest mountain bikes on. The BSD Forever crew will again be pulling off stunts in the BMX street park and there’s a new addition to the event in the form of the Scottish Bike Show Sportive. There’ll be a choice of the challenge route (£21, 65 miles, 1,558m climbing) or a sportive route (£25, 100 miles, 1,797m), taking in the countryside in the area around Loch Lomond.
