Following the enormous success of Spin LDN in 2013, the mini-festival that celebrates cycling’s influence in everyday culture returns this year, bigger and better, with an ambitious and exciting programme.
London Cycling Campaign members can get 2 for 1 advance tickets priced at just £5 (that’s only £2.50 per person!) To find out how you can bag your discounted tickets, please visit the dedicated member’s page (details on the reverse of your membership card).
From Friday 28th to Sunday 30th March, Spin LDN 14 will take residency at the Old Truman Brewery for three days to celebrate cycling culture in all of its guises. In only its second year of existence, Spin LDN has emerged as a platform to showcase the many parts of society that cycling has influenced – from the fashion it has spawned to the film-making it has inspired.
The grassroots, inclusive event will hero some of the most progressive, forward-thinking international brands and smaller independent makers from across the bike world, including handmade frames from artisan builders, emerging cycle fashion brands, off-the-peg bikes, accessories, cycle-wear and cyclic artwork. It will also feature an action packed schedule of activities that includes lessons in the growing art of ‘bike-polo’, live trick BMX demos and tutorials and demonstrations from ex-bike thieves on how not to get your bike stolen.
You can also be assured that your bike will be looked after, because bike parking at the event will be organised by your truly and our friends over at Cyclehoop. So please come and say hello and leave your bike in our capable hands ... you won't be able to miss us - just look out for the Space for Cycling banner (do you see what we've done there??)
To keep you fuelled throughout the day, you’ll find some delicious street food on offer from Great Balls of Fire Bros and Mamas Jerk Station, and to whet your whistle, Spin ‘cycling brew’ from craft beer maker Brewers & Union – specially created for the event – and coffee from Peloton & Co. And as any keen festival-goer knows, a soundtrack to the day is essential, and tunes at Spin will come courtesy of 6 Music’s finest, Gideon Coe.
Product showcases from the world’s most exciting cycling brands include legendary British saddle makers ‘Brooks’, Swedish pioneers ‘Hovding’ (the invisible cycling helmet), Dutch artisan bike builders Vanhulsteijn, Taiwan builders AOI.Cycle, US fashion brand Cleverhood, Italian Denim from PEdALEd, Parisian brand Esthete (LED bike jackets).
