Words by Ben Mercer

We are excited to have teamed up with Exposure to bring you a night testing the latest MTB lights at Gisburn Forest on Sunday 24th November!


There will be special offers available on the night, including an extra 15% off Exposure lights for attendees.

We'll be running a guided run on a full loop of the 8, which is a red grade route of roughly 18km. Please be aware that because this is a night time ride we ask that you have a decent riding skill level!

Laid out in a figure of eight. Highlights include the volunteer built trail of Home Baked, the gnarly Whelpstone Crag and the roller coaster ride of Hully Gully – as close as you can get to dancing on a bike. The trail includes forest road and red & blue grade single-track. There are optional black grade sections and features on the way.

Exposure Demo Lights

We will arrange the lights in a first come, first served basis and call you the week before the ride to arrange which light you would like. We will try to accommodate everyone as best as we can!
