Bike Demo Days Series dates

The 2010 Bike Demo Days Series runs from March to April across five great trail centres. Kicking off the series on 7 March, the series visits the impressive KielderForest in Northumberland. Cannock Chase in the heart of the Midlands is on 21 March followed by Bedgebury in Kent a week later. Wales's premier mountain biking destination, Coed y Brenin, is on 11 April and the series wraps up with the ever-popular Glentress in Scotland on 18 April.

To demo a bike, all you need to do is visit the Bike Demo Days website, select a venue and book a bike. Bikes are booked on a first-come-first-served basis. On the day, you’ll need to bring a helmet, photo ID and a household bill. The demo loops will be marked out by ex-British downhill and 4X champion Will Longden. Catering, parking and toilet facilities will be available at each site.
