Get yourself a free ticket to the National Cycling Show with V12

Posted on in Cycles News , Outdoor News

National Cycling Show 2023 ACT partners V12 Finance, who are headline sponsors for this year’s National Cycle Show, have an allocation of free tickets that they would like to share with you!

Over the two days, the show – which takes place on June 17th and 18th at the NEC in Birmingham - will have a wide range of speakers and celebrities as part of an unmissable programme of live events featuring Ed Clancy, Sir Chris Hoy, Louise Minchin and more. There will be interactive workshops and displays plus a wide range of products to try!

The National Cycling Show is an immersive retail experience enabling consumers to try and buy everything from bikes to accessories. The show aims to normalise cycling, attract new audiences, and show that there is a bike for everyone.

Our colleagues at Cytech, the internationally recognised training and accreditation scheme for bicycle technicians, will also be there supporting their training provider Spokes People who will be present at the show with a stand and delivering workshops in The Bike Clinic, new for this year.

The show brings together the industry to educate, inspire and motivate, from road bikers, gravel, mountain, and commuters. It will also inspire those who already have a passion for exercising outdoors to invest in cycling. The geographical location of the event attracts more of the UK, therefore making cycling more accessible.

To secure yourself a free ticket to the National Cycling Show use the code STEVEV12 here: https://nationalcyclingshow.seetickets.com/event/the-national-cycling-show/nec/2486970?OfferCode=STEVEV12

There are 50 free tickets available via use of the code on a first come, first served basis with the offer expiring on June 12th (or sooner if the tickets all go!)
