It’s been a while… But we are back with our new Solstice Demo Day. This time we have decided to mix things up. Our plan: to try & create an event that allows you to demo bikes in a relaxed environment on some chilled trails, mid week.
📍 Pennerley, Stiperstones.
🗓 21st June (Wednesday)
⏰ 12.30pm - late
🚐 Mexican Street food
💰 £25 per rider, this includes a £10 food token!
Pre-book is ESSENTIAL folks, call us now to book 3 bikes & join us on three guided demo rides. The route is approx 8km & don’t worry we won’t be trying to kill you out on the trails, just a fun ride out.

For pt5 of GG we will leave the shop & head north towards Shawbury & Stanton. You can expect gravel, tarmac, pot holes & mud.

More about the ride...
We’re teaming up with the National Trusts Stepping Stones Project and @trashfreetrails to bring you a route with a difference.
The Stepping Stones project is a landscape-scale nature conservation project helping create and restore wildlife habitat in the Shropshire hills. This route was designed in partnership with Trash Free Trails to connect some of the key sites where important work is being done to help nature, and to promote Purposeful Adventure.
During the ride we’ll stop at several Stepping Stones Project locations where a National Trust officer will give a short talk on why this site is included in the project and why it’s locally important that it’s protected - don't worry these stops will be very brief!
Come & test 3 different bikes back to back around Eastridge Woods on our annual demo day. Santa Cruz, Whyte, Geometron & Hope (bikes) will be attending. Call for more info & to book in. We have lots of acoustic & electric bikes availible to demo. Ebikes will take a separate longer route.
We will have caterers onsite as well as toilet facilities.
Pre-booking is essential & costs £20
This time we are tackling the Longmynds finest gravel, we have a 30km (19 mile) loop planned with 700m of climbing (2300ft). Meeting at the CoOp car park in church Stretton (SY6 6BX) for 9.30am for a 10am prompt start. We will then finish at Heather & Batch, a cafe in Church Stretton who are putting on a Chilli for us (just £5).
