Demo Weekend 2019 Cannock Chase

Words by Ben Mercer

on 01/02/2019 10:00:00

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 below) along with shoes and accessories from the top brands to demo across the weekend, this is a great opportunity to get side by side comparison of the latest kit and bikes that you wouldn't normally get!


Demo Weekend Dates & Times

2019 Line Up


£20 Tickets Per Day

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

  • £5 of every ticket sold goes to 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 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 so hurry and get your tickets now!

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

After you have been checked in at registration you will then be free to test as many bikes and accessories as you like throughout the day. You will be checked in every time you take out a bike, and checked out when you bring the bike back to each stand. You are then free to move onto the next demo stand of your choice! Our demo weekend is renowned for getting people out on a lot of bikes throughout the day with people testing on average about 5 bikes each.

We try to keep this list as up to date as possible, but please note that there is a small chance that a bike listed below may be unavailable on the weekend due to circumstances out of our control!
