The UK Outdoors Show, an event which celebrates everything from mountain biking and road riding to abseiling and hiking, takes place on 26-28 March at the NEC in Birmingham.
A bike ride is being held on the Sunday, with a choice of 100-mile or 100km routes. Organisers are promising clear signing, marshals, bike mechanics, back-up vehicles, regular drink points and a lunch stop.
Inside the exhibition area there’ll be a cycling zone with a bike arena, a computerised cycle simulator and a number of exhibitors.
Explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes will appear at the show to share his experiences, including climbing to the peak of Mount Everest. Olympic rower James Cracknell, who failed in his attempt to break the Land’s End to John O’Groats tandem record last year, will also be there.
Other highlights include climbing walls, hundreds of outdoors exhibitors, fashion shows and a wilderness camp. For more information, visit OutdoorsShowExtra.co.uk.
