I've got a free entry to the cycle show next week only I haven't been up that way for yonks - do any of you know whether there's any good, secure places to leave bikes?

    They usually provide loads of secure bike parking at the venue.
  • All I've found using street view is a small rack by the Warwick Ave entrance

    ...but nothing at the South Brompton road entrance. Still, it's a cycle show, there must be a few extra laid on. I'll take my chances, ketsbaia....

    From the Cycle Show website:

    "Park your bike at the show, the Brompton bike park is situated in the Brompton entrance to the show."

    Thanks ketsbaia, I'd been looking at the Earls Court site....

    What day & time are you guys going? I'll be there on Sunday I think.

    I'm hungry. I'm always hungry!
  • Thursday ''trade day'' for me, not that I'm anything to do with the trade - but I'll be there to see Wheels for Wellbeing' seminar on inclusive access for disabled cyclists. I might look at a couple of bikes while I'm at it though :wink:
  • Last year you could take your bike into the hall (up a couple of steps) and then lock it in a "secure" area. The area was only separated from the rest of the hall by crowd control type barriers, but there were security staff and you were given something (can't remember what now) one half for you bike and the other half to let you back in to the storage area.

    I'm up there on the Saturday and planning on helping out with the ShuttVR stand for a few hours, to say thanks all the nice things they've done for me this year (and giving me a freebie ticket) and meeting up with Markus from Cyclefilm if we can find each other.

    Anyone else going to be around on the Saturday? I'd love to put some faces to names.

  • They have excellent secure bike storage with locking to scaffold poles and security.

    The SCR charity of choice. They do brilliant work, especially considering all their bikes got destroyed in a fire last year. Insurance FTW!
