Tickets are now on sale for the Dalby Forest MBR Demo Day which will take place on 28th April 2018.

This year we are taking the MBR Demo Day to Dalby Forest.

The MBR Demo Days are demo days with a difference. We ask you to be MBR bike testers for the day and we want you to rate the bikes you ride and give us your feedback to go towards a MBR Demo Day bike test feature. Our MBR photographers will alo be out on the trails so you will be able to download photos of yourselves shredding the best new bikes for free. Then at the end of the day you’re invited to share a beer with our team.

In 2017 we teamed up with some of the industry’s top brands for the very first MBR Demo Day at the Forest of Dean and it was a belter of a day.

The sun was out in full force. As were the punters and the demo staffers. 200 test riders in total. 13 bike brands available to demo. MBR writers, demo bike brands and members of the public all had a blast on the fantastic trails of the Forest of Dean.

Due to the success of this event we are launching the Dalby Forest MBR Demo Day in 2018.

There are two demo loops, the main one is a 20-minute blast which takes in some of the best features of the World Cup trail with linking sections of fast flowing Red trail. If you want to understand what the bike you are testing can do, this all-encompassing Demo loop is the place to be. The second loop will have you grinning from ear to ear with fast berms, small-medium features before a steady section 12 fire road climb back to the start at Adderstone Field. These fun, fast loops will give you time to test plenty of bikes!
