There was also a host of interactive activities and challenges for people to try and a very popular interview theatre area with many high-profile sports guests. The atmosphere was described as “super friendly”, “up-beat”, “engaging”, “welcoming” and “fun”. Visitors also said:

“It was brilliant - great family day out. Well done on organising such ,a great event” Fiona Stewart

“Hope you will be running the show again next year. It appeared to be well attended and great for enthusiasts” Julie Thomson

“It was a really busy show and surpassed all of my expectations.” John Miller, CraftSportswear

“Our physio, massage and biomechanics diaries were full on each of the three days, indeed we had a queue form several times over the weekend! We met a lot of great people that we’ll be seeing again in the days and weeks ahead. It was a great success and we’ll see you next year, thanks guys!” Dr John A MacLean, Clinical Director, Hampden Sports Clinic

“Congratulations to the organisers, for a first year event it was excellent. There was a great atmosphere with loads of different activities spread around the hall. We saw a huge range of visitors from weight weenies discussing the finer details of the £10,000 Scultura 9000 Ltd to commuters wanting to see £400 hybrids. Our local dealers have already reported sales as a result of us being there. We will definitely be back for 2017.” Chris Carter, Merida Bicycles Ltd
