This Saturday, 6th March, will see the British Mountain Bike Demo series finally get underway after months of planning. Eight of the UK’s top bike brands, namely; Specialized, Giant, Trek, Gary Fisher, Genesis, Yeti, Santa Cruz and Merida will be at Glentress to offer up an amazing assortment of mountain bikes that, with a little bit of ID you can pop a leg over and hit some of the stunning trails, that this exciting mountain bike playground has to offer. This will undoubtedly be the biggest gathering of bike brands for demo purposes and it will certainly be a marriage made in heaven! To top it all they’ll be situated in the bottom car park with the Hub close at hand for lashings of hot drinks and scrummy cakes!
You’ll also find representatives from nutrition brand Accelerade handing out free samples of their goodies for you to try and the good people of Osprey backpacks will be on hand showing off their finest wares, so make sure you pop on by to say hi.
The Demo kicks off at 10am and will run until 4pm, no need to pre book, just turn up with two forms of ID, which should either include a driving licence or passport and either a credit or debit card. The Demo itself is free but you’re asked that you pay the normal car park charges, as all that money will be going to trail maintenance and construction.
Don’t worry if you can’t make it to Glentress this Saturday as there are five more dates where you can catch up with the series and come and have a ride and a chat.
The next outing will be at Sherwood Pines on the 27th & 28th March, where World Champion DH rider Steve Peat will be making an appearance.
