Ride to the First Urban Bicycle Festival and Make History!


Spin London – the world’s first urban focused bicycle consumer show and festival – will debut the first weekend of May at the Old Truman Brewery in East London.

The festival will bring together urban cyclists, cycle traders and anybody interested in riding bikes in cities for a weekend of cycle-art Installations, talks, screenings and satellite events along with food and drink and live music throughout the festival.

Whether you’re looking for a new bike, want to update parts and accessories or just get an idea of the latest cycling trends, Spin promises to be a lot of fun. Unlike other mainstream bike trade shows, Spin London aims to sharpen the focus on the urban cycling scene by embracing progressive international brands and smaller indie makers in fixed gear, single speed custom and BMX bikes. Alongside all the hardware on show, emerging cycle fashion brands, apparel and accessory retailers and creative talent from the world of urban cycling will take part.

14Bike Co, Aly Capellino, Anthony Oram, Atomic22, Bicycle Taxidermy, Bike Parker, Blaze Components, Carradice Chapeau!, Colourbolt, DMO Frameworks, Douhou Bikes, Donky Bikes, Downland Cycles, Dynamo Works, Foffa Freshstripe, Full Windsor, Georgina in Dublin, Hobo Hackney GT, Hovding, Michaux Milk Bikes, Milltag, Ninjacats, Oak Cycles, Otto London, Rebecca J Kaye, Restrap, Roadrags, Rusby Cycles, Saddle&Spoke, Saffron Frameworks, Singular Cycles, “Super Ted” James, SWRVE, There cycling, Tokyo Bike, Tokyo Fixed, Veleco, Vulpine and more!
