Specialized is inviting you and your mates to join the firm for a weekend of mountain biking at Cannock Chase. The free of charge event takes place next weekend on 16-17 May with complementary camping space provided for those who wish to stay on the Saturday night.

Attendees will have access to a large selection of Specialized demo bicycles* to try out on the Specialized Hot Lap, as well as the chance to explore the trails of Cannock Chase either at their own leisure or by taking part in group rides.

For those who’re partial to airtime there will also be a pump track and an opportunity to session the stunt airbag with Specialized Gravity rider Tom Reynolds. A very special guest will be Specialized Racing’s Hannah Barnes who'll be supporting a host of women’s events throughout the weekend.

Mountain Biking UK will also be present and handing out copies of the team's latest mag – including the 2015 UK trail centre guide. Red Bull’s music truck will provide beats all weekend and Saturday evening will even include mountain bike film showings. Food and drink will be available but won’t  be provided.
