If you're looking to try out an e-bike then you'll be glad to know that we're running our popular series of Bike Live events again in 2018, and they're expanding. We'll be in Bath and at Cannock Chase again, and there will be new events in London and the Forest of Dean.
Bike Live events give you an opportunity to try out a range of bikes from lots of different manufacturers, all at one event. It's not just e-bikes: we're partnering with our sister sites road.cc and off-road.cc so you can try all sorts of different machines if you want. Here's a video from our Bath event in 2016 to give you a flavour of what will be going on...
Haibike and Raleigh have already confirmed for the first event at Bath's Odd Down cycle circuit in February, and there are lots more brands lined up to show you their wares too. You'll get a whole day to ride as many different bikes as you like, and Bath and London are both on traffic-free closed-road circuits so there's no worries about mixing with cars. London's Redbridge Cycle Centre has its own off-road circuit too, and in Bath there will be guided rides out to local trails.
Tickets are priced at just £15 per person and on the day you'll find various food and drink vendors on hand to keep you fuelled up in the event village.
Here's where and when Bike Live will be happening in 2018...
Try out a huge range of road bikes and e-bikes including e-mountain bikes from top manufacturers. Bath's Odd Down circuit is a custom-built 1.5km road circuit, and the event has exclusive use of the pristine tarmac all day. No fighting with the traffic on your test rides!
