Spin London 2016 - Cycling festival

May 20, 2016

Spin London is taking place this weekend in London from Friday 20/05 till Sunday 22/05. Spin London is a 3 day cycling festival perfectly blending everything bike with style, art and creativity. We visited the festival in 2015 and it seems like it has grown even more since.

The 3 day festival takes place in the Old Truman Brewery in Brick Lane, the market and independent shopping scene of East London. Kick-off time is Friday at 1.30pm, open until 8pm and on the weekend days you can browse around between 10am and 5pm. Tickets are between £10-16 for the day, £20 for the weekend. If you're quick though you can still get this ticket offer from The Londonist for 2 tickets at £15.

Spin London hosts a wide range of brands and exhibitors. Some of the interesting folks we met last year include The Massif Central, who we ended up printing t-shirts for. They create beautiful, detailed artwork with data collected from your personal achievements - such as cycling trips and climbs. We also met the guys from Postworkshop. They build customer-tailored bike frames that are stunningly decorated, giving them a real slick and stylish look.

The most fun part of the SPIN cycling festival is that you can test out a whole range of new bikes and other - how to group it? - wheel based vehicles. Last year we witnessed people trying out this step up bike and one of those single wheel electric unicycles.

Accompanied by live tunes, craft beer and coffee, this festival sparks your appetite for life on wheels and brings a broad variety of cycling based creativity under one roof. Hope you enjoy it! 

Check it out, because there is much more entertainment to be found once you're there:
