  • Niner Mountain – 25th March
  • Scott, Specialized & Bergamont Electric Bike – 3rd May (4pm and 7pm)

  • Orange Mountain – 24th June
  • Ibis Mountain – 5th August
  • Santa Cruz / Juliana Mountain – 19th August – BOOKING NOW OPEN CLICK HERE

The booking of the demo bikes will open a month before the event and for 2017 we will be charging for each demo ride to ensure people are as keen as mustard and will actually turn up once they’ve booked on a bike.  The charge will be taken at the time of booking on our website and will cost £19.95 which you will then get back in a £15 gift voucher on the day when you turn up to spend at your leisure, and we will donate the £4.95 postage to Langdale mountain rescue just in case!!

We run an AM and a PM session where AM rides meet at 9:30am at our new Ings store and PM rides meet at 12:30pm also at our Ings store.  With the E bike demo day we are again running it from Ings but we have a 4pm and a 7pm ride so it enables you to come after work if you’re so inclined!


We are also super excited to tell you that we are helping out at the very successful Beer and Bike Festival again in conjunction with Bowness Bay Brewery and the Langdale Estate on the 11th June.  For those who missed it last year it’s basically a ride out with beer and a hog roast when you get back so what’s not to like?!  You can read about the rides last year here and more will unfold as we get closer to the time!


We will have road bike demo’s too this year with Factor, Storck, Alchemy, Scott and Specialized and in some case we already have demo bikes on site for you to go and try so just get in touch with our road store in Ings if you fancy trying a new Specialized Ruby or Roubaix!


We are also proud to be sponsoring 3 sportives this season in conjunction with epic events.  At these rides we will provide mechanical support courtsey of Sam and Simon (Rufus) who will be on hand to provide you with things you’ve forgotten to bring and give your bike a tune up if it’s less than perfect at the event.  The events are as follows:

As is typical of this industry there’s much more to come from us and some is still in the planning stage but we will bring you confirmed events and dates as we get them nailed down!
