Road bike Demo Day at Dalby Forest cancelled

Mountain bike demos not affected

The road bike Demo Day at Dalby Forest has been called off, but the mountain bike event will go ahead as planned

The Saturday road bike element of this weekend’s Bike Demo Days at Dalby Forest in North Yorkshire has been cancelled, but the mountain bike rides on Sunday are still going ahead as planned.


Our sincere apologies to anyone who was hoping to take a road bike for a spin on March 21. Due to circumstances beyond our control, this is going to be a mountain bike-only event.

On March 22, there will be more than 110 mountain bikes from 10 manufacturers that you can take for demo rides. 

If you haven’t been to a Demo Day before, they’re your chance to try out the latest bikes on some of the best trails in the UK, all for absolutely zip.

On Sunday, you can try out machines from the likes of Trek, Gary Fisher, Lapierre, Niner, Santa Cruz, Yeti, Pace, Bionicon, KHS, Norco, Ibis and Van Nicholas.

For more information and to book your free test rides 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.
