In the market for a new mountain bike but not sure where to start? It's always good to take them for a test ride, but trekking round bike shops can be time consuming. Head to The Cycle Show at the Birmingham NEC this September and you can put loads through their paces under one roof.
The Cycle Show is on from the 26th to the 28th of September, and not only will loads of the big brands be there with demo bikes, there's also an outdoor woodland singletrack trail to put them through their paces. Check out bikes by Trek, Diamond Back, Marin, Vitus, Whyte, Mondraker, DMR, Transition, KTM, Rocky Mountain, Boardman, Cube, Rose and Pivot.
Fancy more excitement and a thrilling spectacle? How about some dirt jumping! The 'Sam Pilgrim Big Air Invitational' on the 27th September will see an international line up of riders compete to become the Riders' Rider, and winning Cash 4 Tricks. It's going to be a sight to see.
There'll also be an indoor pump track courtesy of DMR, and an absolute tonne of gear, bikes and products to drool over, whether you ride road, mountain bike, for leisure and pleasure, to commute, or with your family.
Find out about some of the other activities going on with our rundown on the family events at The Cycle Show: The Cycle Show 2014: The Hotspot for Finding Your Family's Perfect Bike.
Even better, you can get a discount on the ticket price with Total Women's Cycling! Just use the code 'TWC' and you'll be able to get you and your family in for just £11.50, instead of the £13 advanced price (plus £1 booking fee) or the £16 door price.
