Sherwood Pines Cycles announces Haibike and Diamondback demo day

Event date: Saturday 9th November 2013

Sherwood Pines Cycles in Mansfield are proud to be hosting the first of this season’s free trail centre demo day with Haibike.

On Saturday 9th November Sherwood Pines trail centre will be giving mountain bikers the chance to try out some of the latest Haibike bikes they could upgrade to when they make their next bike purchase. We will have a selection of carbon full suspension bikes and our electric mountain bikes.

Our friends from Diamondback bikes will also be in attendance with some of their latest Mission and Sortie full suspension bikes too.

Demo Day

Dan Mottishaw from Sherwood Pines Cycles said “I’m stoked to have the support of Diamondback and Haibike who are organising this demo day. Their 2014 bikes look awesome and are more than a match for Sherwood Pines trails so we’re expecting riders from near and far to come and have an awesome thrash-fest!”

The event will run from 9.30am on the day and will have staff on hand to provide information about the bikes and set people up to have a go on a short demo loop.

Members of the Diamondback and Haibike product teams will also be on hand offering riding tips and finding out how the bikes perform as they plan their 2015 models.

During daylight hours bikes can be taken for hour-long demo rides with the first bikes going out from 9.30am. Riders should bring photo ID (driving licence or passport) to leave as a deposit. We would also recommend that people bring their own helmets a pedals however, the bikes will be fitted with standard platform pedals should you not have preference. Helmets will be available to borrow form Sherwood Pines Cycles. We recommend bringing your own trail tools (multi tool, tube, levers, pump) with you when riding.

At 3.30pm Sherwood Pines Cycles will be organising a special night-time ride with all bikes fitted with Moon’s high powered lighting units. The led ride is expected to cover 15 miles through the challenging terrain of one of Britain’s most famous forests. If you are interested in taking part in this exciting experience, please speak to a member of staff at Sherwood Pines Cycles or visit to sign up.

The event is also supported by Muc-Off cleaning equipment, Slime puncture prevention, High5 sports nutrition and Schwalbe tyres.
