It’s that time of year again… our 2017 Demo Weekend is back and will be hitting Cannock Chase on 18th-19th March!

This is our most anticipated event on the year and we are proud to hold the largest mountain bike demo in the UK! This year we have over 180 bikes from the top brands available to test on the trails of Cannock Chase as well as a range of clothing and accessories to test out along side bikes, giving you a great opportunity to get back to back testing of the latest kit.


Demo Weekend Dates & Times

£15 Tickets Per Day

After the great response last year, tickets to our demo weekend will once again be £15 per day:

  • £5 of every ticket sold goes to Birmingham Children’ Hospital - This year we have chosen the Birmingham Children's Hospital as our Charity of choice who need donations to help 250,000 children each year.
  • £5 of every ticket sold will go to the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity - 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.

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 that will be available on the weekend and we have a full list of the demo weekend bikes below showing sizes available from the brands below so you can get your wishlist ready! Ladies demo bikes will also be available at our demo weekend and we will have a ladies ride run by Specialized each day at 1pm – check out more information and how to join us!

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