Video: Kielder Demo Day a massive success

2010 Bike Demo Day series kicks off

Our first Bike Demo Day of 2010 took place over the weekend at KielderForest in Northumberland, where riders turned up in droves to test top quality bikes from the likes of Scott, Lapierre, Bionicon, Ragley, Rose, Norco and Saracen.


All the stands were set up and ready by 9.30am in time for the first demo riders to get their leg over one of the hundreds of bikes available to test. Each manufacturer took the time to prepare the suspension and other settings to dial in the best possible riding setup.

We were at Kielder to talk to riders, take pictures of the action and interview some of the many happy people who demoed a bike. You can check out the video and pictures below.

Next stop for the Demo Day series is Cannock Chase in the Midlands, followed by Bedgebury Forest in the South East, Coed y Brenin in Wales and Glentress in Scotland. For more information, head to the Demo Day website.
