Trek, Commencal, Yeti and Cotic demo day

60-bike test fleet in Peak District

Fancy a test ride of a 2008 Trek, Commencal, Yeti or Cotic? Manchester bike shop Royles is holding a demo day featuring those bikes on Sunday, 3 February at Roman Lakes Leisure Park, Mellor near Stockport.


The venue is right on the edge of the Peak District and the folks at Royles say they have created a great circuit to give the bikes a proper workout in the environment they were designed for.

The 60-bike test fleet will include Trek’s superb Fuel EX bikes and quirky 69er’s; Commencal’s award winning Meta 5.5 bikes, Cotic’s sought after Hemlock in short and long travel guise and a Carbon ASR from Yeti.

There will be multiple rides setting off during the day which should give you plenty of opportunity to try different steeds and compare notes. The Royles crew and representatives from each manufacturer will be on hand to ensure you are properly fitted and set up for your ride.

There is an on site café for hot snacks and drinks so you can mull over your prospective purchase with a bacon butty and a brew.

The Demo event is pre-registration only and there are a limited number of places available. So if your interested, give the shop a call on 01625 543440 and reserve your place now.

You will be required to bring photo ID such as a passport or driving license and a credit or debit card for security. Under 18’s are welcome to ride so long as they are accompanied by an adult.
