Join Singletrack at the GT Malverns Classic. 26th – 29th of August

by 17

Being a Singletrack full member is bigger and better than it’s ever been. There are a whole bunch of perks and discounts in the members’ area but you are also invited to join us to mess about on bikes in the sunshine. Maybe a few pints and some disco dancing too?

We wanted to put on a Singletrack members event, but organising events is a right PITA. So we thought we would let Si Paton take the PITA and we will just jump his train. It’s a great event, join us.

Singletrack Exclusives

As a Singletrack member you will get a load of exclusive perks at the GT Malverns Classic:

  • Exclusive Singletrack camping area, with our own toilets (we are unsure if this is a good thing or a bad thing?).
  • Saturday Singletrack group picnic ride.
  • Join Chipps and the STW crew in the exclusive Singletrack VIP area to watch the World Cup DH live on a giant 9x5m TV screen.
  • Some special member deals on Merch.
  • Unwind at the Singletrack Happy Hour.
  • Exercise your freedom of speech whilst watching the racing at the “Singletrack Heckling Corner” (we have not told Si about this yet).
  • Wake up to Chipps’s “Ride & Shine Sunday Morning Chill Out” DJ set. Yes, this is a real thing, and don’t worry, apparently it’s now OK to listen to Pat Benatar and Fleetwood Mac.

Quite literally yacht-rock-tastic mate.

And there is more…

Beyond taking it easy, drinking beer in the hot sun, heckling and going for a ride, there is also some proper racing. Personally I will not be competing, but will hanging out at the legendary Malvern’s Bomb Hole waiting for some wipe-outs. The other races include:

  • Balance Bikes
  • Haibike e-Bike Challenge
  • GT Bicycles Dual Slalom
  • Pump Track Racing
  • Funnduro/Enduro
  • TRP Lake Ride
  • Retro Show and Shine 
  • Spank British Whip Off 
  • Cross Country
  • Schwalbe Tyres Downhill


  • Music
  • Camping
  • Bar
  • Bike Demo
  • Lots of trade stands
  • FREE children’s Fun Fair
  • World Cup racing on a giant telly.

Get in there…

It’s time for a road trip, throw the tent and bike in the back of the car, stop at the supermarket and buy lots of beer and some munchies, and hang out with Singletrack at the

    My birthday weekend. My hometown, and I’m on holiday it the time.

    To me, it still doesn’t feel quite right going to a gathering…even in a field…maybe it will in a few weeks. Would be nice to get to see my friends and relatives back home too, it’s been quite some time.

    last Malverns was quite a good laugh though

    Brilliant, can’t wait. Never been before, which bike for the lake ride? 😁

    Was planning on coming again with the family. Then saw how much the tickets were (£93 2X adults 1x child and car parking).  for me to bring them and walk around a field for a few hours… wish them luck after some rotten years of luck. But even though I am very local I’m out!

    I’ve got tickets for the event plus parking and entered the DH, Enduro and Dual Slalom, but as my elbow is currently lock wired together, I won’t be able to make it, does anyone know if you can sell/transfer British Cycling entry’s? Or want some tickets?

    Would do, but prohibitively expensive, £5.00 to park in a field, entrance fee, plus admin fee , plus race entry fee.

    And in 2019(?) turn up on the day paid the same as pre-entry, used the same gate.

    It’s £11 to park in the field this year!! Like I said earlier, love to support…far too much money to bring the family

    Hadn’t spotted the price. £77 for a 3 day pass does seem quite a lot. And a tenner for parking is up there with the original Malverns pricing!

    Yes it includes camping, but what if you’re not? Don’t recall paying that much for entry at the last one.

    I suppose it’ll always need to be a balance between covering costs and making a bit, and encouraging people to turn up. But I fear this will kill it.

    The last one was good, and busy enough, but it was also fairly well priced.

    Not sure half price entry into eastnor castle will sway it….

    just checked my ticket for the last (only) one.

    £30 weekend ticket, plus £2.40 booking.
    £5.50 for the demo day
    plus insurance and transaction charge.

    so just over £40.

    Exactly, I have a 11 year old a 16 year old, a baby and wife. For us to go for the day is:
    Car park – £11
    3 x entry @£27.50

    So £93.50 for the day!!!

    As an example I’m taking the family to the British motor show and that’s £37 for a family ticket (all under 17)

    I was all set to go….

    Tbf I’ve moved 200 miles north of where I was and I’m now in for a 6hr drive down and return.

    I almost bailed but…

    your bringing a bike…..!

    @duncancallum going to bring them both. I’ve entered the XC race and thinking about it I’d rather the rigid singlespeed took a dive in the lake, because I’m not going to be able to resist that stupidity.
