See the 2014 Trek and Bontrager ranges before they’re released

Trek will be opening the doors of the 2014 Trek World product launch to the public for the first time in its UK history. The event takes place at Silverstone Circuit next month.

Traditionally limited to retailers, Trek World offers the opportunity to check out the latest products and innovations from Trek and Bontrager before they’re available to buy in stores. That includes Trek’s Project One customisable programme, that’s now available for both road and mountain bikes.

As well as product displays, presentations will take place throughout the day. There will be demonstrations of the Trek Certified Fit process, for example, and a Ladies’ Night lecture. You’ll also have the chance to win a free fitting from a Trek fit expert.

The Trek World Open Day will be held on 20 July from 9am until 4pm at the Silverstone Wing at Silverstone Circuit in Towcester. Northamptonshire. www.silverstone.co.uk

Entry is free if you pre-register, or £5 if you don’t. Probably best you take a couple of minutes to fill in the online registration, then. https://www.planningpoint.net/V2/Registrations/index.cfm?EventID=2071 One free parking space is included with each booking.

Near, not in Towcester, surely? Or has the town grown a lot since I last got stuck in grand Prix traffic jams there?

Or wait a few months and see them in your local shops. Got an invite to this but don't see the point if you can't ride them.

That's just the post town. People used to put "Near" in front of them and now they don't. It doesn't make villages like Silverstone part of that town. Like it says on wikipedia, "Post towns rarely correspond to political boundaries and often group places that for all other purposes are quite separate."

Yay! it looks like i'm no longer working that weekend.

I might try and make it my child's first longish trip in the trailer - is there bike parking?

(if it helps, it'll be a Trek towing the trailer).

I recently wrote off - in a crash - an old Trek 7.2fx, and after lots of suggestions and a weekend viewing possible replacements, i replaced it with... a new Trek 7.2fx! And the same for my wife.

It's just the right bike for me, as I wanted a threadless headset - usually specc'ed on higher end hybrids, but I also wanted steel forks - usually considered low end - with bosses for a front rack!

Giant and Specialized just didn't do that combination, and alloy or carbon forks were not an upgrade, for my purposes! And my local Trek dealer was brilliant.

Not paid by Trek to write this, just a big fan of their bikes.
