Tri Expo – EventCity, Manchester – 18th to 19th March 2017

It is a big weekend in the North West for triathlon and cycling fans as the 2017 Tri Expo ( and Bike Expo ( take place at EventCity.

I was there last year to host some of the speakers on the various stages and it really was a very impressive and packed event with lots going on. If you are in and and around Manchester this weekend, it will be well worth a trip. Highly recommended.
