Free mountain bike demos at Afan this weekend

By BikeRadar | Friday, March 6, 2009 2.32pm

Our Bike Demo Day series is heading to Glyncorrwg at Afan Forest Park in South Wales this Sunday, where you’ll be able to ride the latest and best mountain bikes from the finest manufacturers out there.

One of the originators of the UK trail centre scene, Afan offers four stunning trails headed up by the legendary 46km Skyline route. Taking in vast amounts of singletrack and including some huge descents, it’s the trail that many others try to emulate. The most popular route is White’s Level  – a leg ripping, face gurning and adrenaline surging 24km rollercoaster.  

You’ll have the chance to test ride loads of mountain bikes from the likes of Trek, Lapierre, Corsair, Yeti, Bionicon and Santa Cruz on a demo course designed by four-cross star Will Longden. If you’re familiar with the area you’re free to ride where you like, provided that the bike is returned within the allotted time.

Some of the BikeRadar and What Mountain Bike crew will be on hand too, so make sure you say hello, and you can pop into the Drop Off cafe for a drink and bite to eat.

For more information and to book your test ride now, go to the Bike Demo Days website. If you've got any questions, just head over to our dedicated Demo Days forum page and we'll do our best to answer.
