Canyon Bicycles has announced its first ever UK brand experience event which gives you the chance to check out and ride models from its 2018 range before you buy. You can’t just walk into a shop and take a look at the bikes like you can with most other brands because Canyon is online-based.
The Canyon event will take place at Mercedes Benz World, Brooklands, Surrey on the 24th & 25th March 2018. Canyon will be occupying over 1000m2 of exhibition area with over 40 bikes – both road and mountain bike models plus some of the brand’s concept bikes.
Alongside the exhibition you’ll have the opportunity to test a selection of bikes at a demo tent just outside the main building. There will also be an exhibition of photography by Tino Pohlmann marking 11 years of Canyon bikes being ridden in the pro peloton.
Canyon is also promising an extensive two-day programme of talks from athletes and engineers. Details of this will be finalised soon and published on www.canyon.com.
The event is free to attend. You can pre-register your interest at www.canyon.com/contests/ExperienceUK/ and you’ll be entered automatically into a prize draw to win a Canyon bike of your choice up to a value of £1,300.
If you can’t make the trip to Surrey, you also have the chance to ride a range of bikes from Canyon at two road.cc BikeLive demo days, the first in Bath on 18th February, the second in Cannock on 21st April.
