Event description


We're excited to announce that our highly anticipated Demo Weekend is back again, and will be hitting Cannock Chase on the 23rd & 24th March 2019! Supported by the top brands, we'll be bringing you another weekend where you'll have the chance to test the latest mountain bikes back-to-back on a great section of Cannock Chase.

With a choice of over 250 mountain bikes (check the full list here) along with shoes and accessories from the top brands available to demo across the weekend, this is a great opportunity to get a side by side comparison of the latest kit and bikes that you wouldn't normally get!

Demo Weekend Dates & Times

  • Saturday 23rd March: 9am - 4pm (last ride out at 3pm)
  • Sunday 24th March: 9am - 4pm (last ride out at 3pm)

£20 Tickets Per Day

Tickets for our demo weekend will be £20 per day:

  • £5 of every ticket sold goes towards the Eastridge Trail Partnership - This year we'll be supporting the Eastridge Trail Partnership, this is a great trail centre in the Shropshire Hills, and offers some of the best mountain bike trails in the area. The trails are maintained by a small bunch of loyal volunteers, and our donations will help purchase materials and tools to keep the trails running sweet!
  • £5 of every ticket sold will go towards the Air Ambulance Service - These people are invaluable to us when we need them most. We wanted to give something back to the people that have helped so many mountain bikers in their time of need over the years.

Why do we charge for tickets? Our demo weekend sells out very quickly and tickets are in very high demand. To stop people reserving tickets for friends that may not be able to make it, which then means other people miss out, we wanted to add some commitment to tickets so everyone gets a chance to come to our demo.

Demo Bikes & Accessories

We have a huge demo fleet for men and women that will be available on the weekend, and we have a full list of the demo weekend bikes showing sizes available from the brands below so you can get your wishlist ready!

All bikes are available on a first come, first served basis on each day.

We also have some shoe and accessory brands that will have kit available for you to test out on the trails; an opportunity you rarely get!


... and much more!
