Muddymoles mountain biking in the Surrey Hills and Mole Valley

Bike Shows

Posted by Matt | September 4, 2008 | 1 comment so far

Eurobike opens today, 4 September for the next three days in Friedrichshafen, Germany. It’s the key bike show for Europe and falls slap bang with the release of most manufacturers 2009 model launches so it’ll be interesting to see what pops up on the interwebs. I’ll keep you posted if I see anything…

Closer to home, it’s not too long until the Cycle Show at Earls Court which runs from 9—12 of October where we get our chance to see what’s happening with next year’s bikes. And let’s not forget the ‘fashion show’ which is always a highlight.

It’s been good value in the past and a group of us will make the annual consumers pilgrimage to find out what Dave will buy next year on the Friday (9th). I fancy the idea of a couple of beers and a bite to eat after we’ve had our fill in the halls too.

I’m going to take a camera as I’ve done previously (though not the SLR I think) and maybe I can persuade Dave to shoot some footage with his helmet cam. Not with it on his crash helmet of course, although that would give a unique perspective on the event. If it’s anything like some of his Welsh MTB footage, there’ll be a lot of starting at the ceiling…

If anyone fancies meeting up with us on the day, let us know and we’ll see if we can rendezvous.

About the author

Matt is one of the founding Molefathers of the Muddymoles, and is the designer and main administrator of the website.

Having ridden a 2007 Orange Five for many years then a 2016 YT Industries Jeffsy 29er, he now rocks a Bird Aether 9 and a Pace RC-627.

An early On-One Inbred still lurks in the back of the stable as a reminder of how things have moved on. You can even find him on road bikes - currently a 2019 Cannondale Topstone 105 SE, a much-used 2011 Specialized Secteur and very niche belt drive Trek District 1.

If you've ever wondered how we got into mountain biking and how the MuddyMoles started, well wonder no more.
