Demo Bikes

We'll be bringing a huge demo fleet with us, including the best new bikes from the biggest brands, all available on a first come, first served basis. Make sure to check back regularly as we add the full list of demo bikes to this page.

What you need to bring

Please be aware that a helmet is essential to test any of the bikes - a pair of pedals is also a good idea, but not essential.

All registration will be completed online, so simply print your ticket (that will be emailed to you) and bring it along to the event. We will then use this registration document to check against our list of attendees and supply you with a token, which can then be used to demo bikes.

Please note that you MUST bring photo identification with you. This is a requirement for entry to the event.
