‘£3 discount for Cambridge Cycling Campaign members’

Image as described adjacent

The publishers of Encycleopedia and Bike Culture Quarterly are running their own cycle show on 27, 28 and 29 May. It will be in the Knavesmire Exhibition Centre at York Racecourse.

Two things should make this show stand out: it is a ‘try out’ show – and it is ‘for folders, city bikes, child-carrying attachments, tourers, recumbents, special needs cycles, tandems, mountain bikes, family multicycles and electric-assist bikes’. Given the wide range of cycling alternatives covered in Encycleopedia each year, this ought to be a fascinating event.

Entry costs £7 for adults, £3.50 for children, and £11 for a family – but the organisers have kindly offered a £3 discount for Cambridge Cycling Campaign members, upon production of a current membership card!
