SixSixOne Mini D.H series. A cracking bit of winter fun at a well run event. Might appeal to you more than you think! Being shorter tracks these events suit short travel bikes as well, so dig out your 140mm trail weapon or even your hardtail and hit up some winter racing.
Dates: Sunday 2nd December 2012, Sunday 27th February 2013 and Sunday 24th February 2013 all held at the Forest of Dean.
Blazing Bike Sunday road ride! Yes you heard it right, a road ride on a Sunday morning. We will running this through out the year now. We are just deciding on the first date but it should be in the next few weeks.
Incorporated in this will be a few day trips on the bikes with a possible train ride home! If you have any ideas on destinations please let us know. We have had a few such as Aberystwyth, Fish Guard, Bristol and Chester to name a few! Will keep you posted as we know more.
Wednesday night, night ride. Something we have been running for a few years now and seems to be quite popular. We meet at Blazing Bikes at 6:30 every Wednesday with a relaxed format of around a 2 hour ride followed by some complimentary food at The Station Inn. All capabilities welcome, the ride is more about the banter and having fun than racing up the hills! We do occasionally like to race down though!!
Here at Blazing Bikes we will be hosting demo days with brand such as Scott, Orange, Santa Cruz, Eddy Merckx and Pivot through out 2013. Dates will be posted as and when we know.
We will have selections of road and mountain bike depending on the brand we have on the day. We have quite a selection of demo’s already which can be seen on our demo page. If you have any queries on a demo please feel free to give the shop a call on 01694 781515.
