Bangkok, THAILAND - SpiceRoads Cycle Tours, Asia's premier specialist bicycle tour operator, will exhibit their diverse portfolio of bicycle tours in Asia and Eastern Europe at the UK Cycle Show 2013 at the NEC in Birmingham, United Kingdom, from September 26-29.

The SpiceRoads booth will be located in the Holiday Zone (H58) of the UK's largest cycling event.

SpiceRoads will be on hand to inform UK cyclists the many advantages of bicycling in Asia, provide details of 23 holiday biking destinations and the 100 plus tours on offer in many cycling styles, as well as the pros of joining an organized tour and using an operator based in the region.

Details on the upcoming ride with Sean Kelly, the legendary pro cycling champion, from Bangkok to Phuket, Thailand, on January 31- February 7, 2014 will also be available. This special road bike tour is designed for cyclists that want to push themselves hard each day and at the same time have an opportunity to ride with a former professional cyclist. Hailing from Ireland, Kelly was one of the most successful road cyclists of the 1980s, and one of the finest classic riders of all time.
