Dates have been confirmed for the next two Spin London shows, with a pre-Christmas event in December ahead of the main event, Spin London, in May next year.

From Friday 5th to Sunday 7th December, Spin Xmas will take over Rochelle School in Shoreditch, providing visitors with a venue to buy cycling-related gifts for Christmas.

Spin Xmas - a follow-up to last year’s successful pre-Christmas collaboration with the London Coffee Festival - is free to attend and will feature exhibitors from throughout the cycling industry and beyond.

Craft Beer Rising will be pouring the beer (and the mulled wine) in a festive-themed Spin Xmas bar, while an illustration exhibition by Spoke London will see emerging artists and illustrators showcase their cycle-themed work and wares.

DJs will be spinning tunes throughout the weekend, and free, secure bike parking will be provided courtesy of the London Cycling Campaign and Cyclehoop.

Rochelle School is a two-minute walk from Shoreditch High Street station, close to Boxpark and Brick Lane. The event starts at 5pm on Friday 5th December.

Spin organiser Alex Daw said: "Spin Xmas is the perfect opportunity to stock up on cycling-related Christmas presents - we'll bring together dozens of interesting cycling brands under one roof.

“We’re excited about Spin 2015 too, which will be our biggest-ever show. We want to appeal to cyclists of all kinds – commuters, mountain-bikers, club riders and of course the fixed gear and single speed crowd!”

Spin 2015 will take place in central London on Friday May 8th to Sunday 10th, featuring a test track and race circuit, along with the usual blend of bike products, bars, DJs and food stalls.

The Zeitgeist Agency, whose clients include Fred Perry, Puma and Lyle and Scott, will be working to promote Spin Xmas, particularly in the mainstream media.
