Specialized hits Cannock this weekend

by 1

Specialized is taking over at Cannock Chase this weekend (16 & 17th May) – and this is no ordinary demo weekend.

As well as having the opportunity to test-ride* brand new kit from the Big S, you’ll also be able to meet some of the brands ambassadors, take part in group rides, session the air bag [where do we sign?! – Ed.], enter the event prize draw for a chance to win good stuff and get your stoke on with an MTB film night on Saturday and noise-making from the Red Bull music truck all weekend. Sounds more like a festival of mountain biking than a demo weekend to us – and best of all, it’s all free!

Here’s what Specialized says about the event:
